Update on 24 December at 08:50 am.
Officers from the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions have inspected Yeagarup Beach and the whale carcass is no longer present on the beach.
Additional caution is recommended by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, as any residue from where the whale carcass was beached may still attract sharks to the area.
Switch on your Sea Sense and stay informed of shark activity information by checking the SharkSmart website, download the SharkSmart WA app or follow Surf Life Saving WA Twitter.
If you see a shark, report it to Water Police on 9442 8600.
