"A small shark has been chased into the shallows by a larger creature, possibly another shark, at the northern end of Shelly Beach at East Ballina," the page reported.

"The shark beached itself, and has been dragged by authorities back into the water at 0715am.

"Thanks for the pic, Michelle Edwards, of police putting it back into the water."
