Diver recalls being attacked by an aggressive seal along False Bay

28 September 2021 2:29 PM

Yesterday we told you about a frightening incident that happened to a diver while swimming out in False Bay on Sunday. Jerome Petersen, who's been diving and swimming in the waters along False Bay for more than thirty years, says he's never encountered such an incident before. While swimming about 500 metres from the shoreline, Jerome had an encounter with an animal. A large one at that. One with large teeth. One would assume that it's a shark. That's exactly what Jerome thought.
But it wasn't. Jerome had an encounter with an aggressive seal, who bit and gnawed away at him, ripping his fins off his feet, and even tried to rip the speargun out of his hands.

Pippa caught up with Jerome Petersen.
