AYR, AUSTRALIA (RNN) – It’s not safe to go back in the water in Australia. It’s not safe to walk on certain muddy roads, either.

A massive, man-eating shark washed up in a puddle about 10 miles from the ocean in Ayr, two days after Tropical Cyclone Debbie came ashore nearby packing 163 mph winds.

The Queensland Fire and Rescue snapped a few pictures and admitted they really didn’t have a clue what happened to the 5-foot-long dead shark.

A local journalist speculated the poor devil must have got caught up in a storm surge and beached himself in the middle of a road, according to UPI.

When alive and swimming, the bull shark is considered one of the most dangerous to humans. The @QldFES took the opportunity to reiterate a warning to stay out of flood water, which is good advice wherever you are.
