The beast on the shore

•, By Leon Watson
  The southern right whale's carcass has now been removed from the beach using a bulldozer and truck
Authorities closed off a stretch of the coast to ward off curious onlookers It is not yet known if the whale was alive when it was attacked or had already succumbed to an illness

A large section of coastline in South Africa has been closed after a 15-metre whale washed ashore following an attack by great white sharks.

The whale was removed from the surf after its carcass attracted high numbers of great whites to the coast by Muizenberg beach, near Cape Town, on Sunday.

Authorities have since taken the southern right whale from the beach but have closed off a stretch of shore from Muizenberg to Monwabisi 'as a precaution'.
