A member of the public found a small shark alive in a roadside puddle at One Tree Hill this morning and contacted police.

The amazing discovery was made about 10.45am on Friday 26 August at the intersection of Yorktown Road and Black Top Road, One Tree Hill.

Despite being only partially submerged in the puddle, the shark, believed to be a Port Jackson Shark, was still alive.

A member of Fauna Rescue SA attended and placed the shark in a container of water. Sadly, Fauna Rescue SA advise the shark has since died.

How the shark came to be in the puddle is still a mystery, however, police have ruled out the possibility of a Sharknado. It is believed the shark may have been caught earlier today and dumped, or was kept as a pet but was growing too large for its tank.
