perth - A surfing tournament in Australia was canceled after two men in the area were bitten by sharks. According to the Australian broadcaster ABC, the organization speaks of a 'unique situation': the sharks land on stranded whales, which contributes to their aggressiveness.

Two surfers marched on Monday in the neighborhood of Gracetown, in the west of Australia. A 37-year-old man then had to be operated on both legs. A 41-year-old Dane was slightly injured. He said he had 'good luck'. It is unclear whether the men have fallen prey to the same shark.

The attacks have also led to the cancellation of the Margaret River Pro tournament. The World Surf League prematurely ended the competition for safety reasons. Several participants had indicated that they were not comfortable with it. 'Two shark attacks in less than 24 hours, just a few kilometers from the event,' wrote a Brazilian surfer. ' Very dangerous, right? ''
