“The usual state government-funded shark patrols start in early December, but that’s something we’ll be monitoring closely, just to make sure, through science, that this isn’t something that starts to become more regular going forward.” He said.

In addition to Todd and Brigitte, last month a woman also suffered injuries to her legs when she was attacked by a shark. She was swimming near a pier in the southwest of the state when she was attacked.

In May, local teacher Simon Bacanello was fatally attacked by a shark near Elliston, about 120 kilometers from Streaky Bay, the area where Todd was attacked.
