Australia bites back at shark attacks

Western Australia authorities taking bold measures to stop the fierce sea creatures from killing people.

    The government in Australia is taking measures to stop sharks from killing people with a $7m programme designed to "track, catch and destroy" any predator that comes close to its westernmost beaches.

    The decision comes after five people were killed this year alone.
