Golf cũng là môn thể thao mạo hiểm

ở gần lỗ 14 trong sân Carbrook Golf Club, Brisbane, Úc có một cái hồ trong đó có... 6 con cá mập (đến đây từ trận lụt năm 1996, cách nay 17 năm)

For nearly two decades, the Carbrook Golf Club near Brisbane, Australia, had the ultimate (tối thượng) water hazard (nguy hiểm): a lake teeming with (đầy ắp) bull sharks.

It all started in 1996 when raging floods (lũ lụt hoành hành) swept six young bull sharks from a nearby river into a 51-acre lake near the golf course’s 14th hole. When the floodwaters (nước lũ) receded (rút đi), the sharks found themselves stuck, surrounded by grassy hills (đồi cỏ) and curious (tò mò) golfers.

The sharks spent 17 years in the lake, sustaining themselves on its large stock of fish and on the occasional meat treat provided by the club’s staff. One shark was illegally fished out, while the others vanished after subsequent floods.

The sharks, according to a new study, are more than just a fluke (sự may mắn) along the fairway. In research published last month in the journal Marine and Fisheries Science, Peter Gausmann, a shark scientist and lecturer at Ruhr University Bochum in Germany, said that the cartilaginous (sụn) club members of Carbrook demonstrate that bull sharks can live indefinitely (vô thời hạn) in low-salinity aquatic environments.
