By Hannah Osborne | IB Times – Thu, May 1, 2014

Several beaches in Perth, Australia were forced to close after a huge great white shark was spotted chasing a whale.

The 13ft shark was pictured by Surf Life Saving WA, who said it was 100m from the shore of the Floreat Groyne at City Beach.

According to news.com.au, it had been attracted to shallow waters by a 19ft whale swimming nearby.

"This is the White Shark that has been cruising the coast. Last seen between Scarborough and Trigg at 12:47," Surf Life Saving WA said.

"The shark appears to be following this whale north. First sighted off Swanbourne and last seen off Waterman."

City Beach was reopened, but two other beaches remained closed for several more hours. All have since reopened.
