Shark bites fisherman on finger in Qld

21:13 AEST Sun Feb 22 2009

A man has suffered a shark bite while fishing off Cairns.

The man was bitten while fishing at Batt Reef about 10.15am (AEST) on Sunday, a Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) spokeswoman said.

QAS paramedics met the vessel at Yorkeys Knob Marina, north of Cairns, about an hour later and took the man to the Cairns Base Hospital in a stable condition.

It was not clear if he lost his finger in the attack, or whether he was on a private or chartered fishing vessel.
