Body found in cairns botanic gardens near water tank
A dead shark, taken into custody as part of investigations into the dead animal, is being put up for auction.
The shark is from South West Queensland, but had been thought to have been in cairns around an abandoned water tank.
The animal was found dead at the back of the tank on the edge of a small clearing, but has only now surfaced.
Bridget Tulloch with Queensland police said they had been searching for it for months but the shark had yet to make contact with the marine mammals.
«We don’t think this is the person that it mi솔레어 카지노ght be,» she said.

«We’re now going to turn our attention to the shark.»
The shark, which had washed ashore three days ago, was not wearing any identification tags.
It was found on August 12 by one of a number of locals near an abandoned cairns botanic garden near the water tank.
A spokesman for the National Parks and Wildlife Service said the shark was discovered on the edge of the clearing and given a veterinary check at the scene.
The shark, which was described as looking like a bull shark, died in the last hour before it was picked up by two marine mammal rangers.
She said a body was placed in a wooden box and was being taken to a regional crime lab for an autopsy.
The agency is continuing its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shark.
