Horrible sharkArtist’s conception

Writing about the Queensland floods, Grist cities editor Sarah Goodyear wrote: “If you were to anthropomorphize the flood, you might say it is taking a perverse pleasure in pointing out just where the shiny, mighty city is weakest.” Little did we expect that it would start finding cities’ weakest points AND PUTTING SHARKS IN THEM. Residents of Goodna, 15 miles from Brisbane, have reported seeing bull sharks swimming down flooded city streets near the McDonald’s. There’s no photographic evidence yet, but bull sharks are native to the area, and we’re guessing they also really like fillet-o-fish sandwiches.
