Shark 'bumps' lifesaver surf ski at Fourth Groyne beach, Mandurah after Perth ... trends now
A shark has 'bumped' a lifesaver's surf-ski at a popular beach in Western Australia just days after a teen girl was mauled to death by a bull shark.
Stella Berry, 16, was with friends on the banks of the Swan River in North Fremantle, Perth, on Saturday when she saw a pod of dolphins and jumped in the water about 3.30pm.
She was bitten on the leg by a suspected bull shark and was unable to be saved despite the desperate efforts of witnesses and paramedics.
On Tuesday, Mandurah Surf Life Saving club reported another shark sighting while training in the morning at Fourth Groyne in Silver Lands, south of Perth.
Members of the club were 150m off shore when the shark, which has not been identified, bumped into a surf ski, which is a type of kayak made for the ocean.
The scary sighting was reported to Surf Lifesavers Western Australia at 7.43am on Tuesday morning, with the club sharing an alert on Twitter three hours later.

'Mandurah SLS club members undertaking training, have advised of a shark interaction,' the club wrote.
'Shark bumped surf ski from underneath.'
The Western Australian Government's SharkSmart issued a warning for Fourth Groyne Surf Break near Mandurah.
The City of Mandurah has since closed the beach in an effort to reduce the risk of a shark attack.
It comes just three days after Ms Berry was mauled to death by a bull shark in North Fremantle.
A Shenton College student, Ms Berry was relaxing by a rope swing with her friends in the Swan River at about 3.30pm on February 4 when she saw a pod of dolphins.
