Real Life Sharknado

Technically, it's a cyclone ... but why quibble?

WIN News TV journalist Philip Calder was out reporting in Ayr, a coastal town in the state of Queensland, Australia, that got hit by Cyclone Debbie last week, when he ran into a bull shark stranded in the middle of a road. “He must’ve gotten caught in a torrent and confused, beached himself on the side of the road,” Calder told

"Think it's safe to go back in the water? Think again! A bull shark washed up in Ayr. Stay out of floodwater" tweeted Queensland Fire & Emergency. (Wait, was that a quote from Sharknado? We're going to need a bigger movie!)

The meter-and-a-half (5 ft) bull shark was quite dead when it was discovered by passersby - no mascara shotgun needed.
