Small Bull Shark killed by Rangers in South African River
Published by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife on 16 May 2012 :
Field Rangers repairing a fence crossing at the white iMfolozi (Siyembeni area, Makhamisa Section) river saw an unidentified large fish swimming between their legs. They struck it with a “celemba”, and killed it. Upon inspection it was realised they had killed a +/- 1 meter Zambezi shark. The Ezemvelo Marine biologist was contacted and the find reported, and the shark positively identified as a Zambezi Shark, otherwise known as a Bull Shark. They are known to travel very far inland in the Zambezi river, but, according to our knowledge, never been recorded this far in a reasonably more shallow system, like the Umfolozi River.
