Hunt now under way for Australia killer shark, which tore a 21-year-old surfer in half

PERTH, Australia (AFP) - A hunt was under way on Monday for a shark that killed a 21-year-old man as police praised the courage of two surfers who brought his body back to shore. The victim was in the water off Bunker Bay, a popular tourist spot on Australia's west coast, when the shark attacked on Sunday, biting him so badly the lower half of his body was torn away, police said. Local reports said a Great White Shark, up to 4.5m, was thought to be responsible, with a plane and boats scouring the coastline to find it with the beach remaining closed. Sergeant Craig Anderson from Dunsborough police told reporters it was 'perfect shark conditions'. 'It was dark and gloomy water, overcast skies, light rain falling, there was whale action in the bay and some seals about,' he said.
