A spearfisherman had an encounter with a white shark off Millers Point near Simonstown today. The shark did not behave aggressively, but due to having friends in the water close by the spearfisherman said that he decided to shoot the shark to chase it out of the area. The spearfisherman said the spear went in about 40 cm in front of the gills and behind the eye. The extent of the injury is unknown, but the public are asked to please report any strange sightings of sharks or possible stranding of the animal to Alison Kock at 0726619516.
