An­other big croc spot­ted at Newell

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A THREE-ME­TRE croc­o­dile was spot­ted sun­ning him­self on the sands of Newell Beach on Tues­day morn­ing. This sight­ing fol­lows the re­moval of 3.5 me­tre croc­o­dile last week from a trap at nearby Salt­wa­ter Creek. A lo­cal res­i­dent was walk­ing the beach when he spot­ted what he thought was a large log of wood scurry into the ocean. The man then saw a cou­ple of tourists on the beach and went to warn them when the croc reap­peared a few min­utes later. The Depart­ment of En­vi­ron­ment and Her­itage Pro­tec­tion will in­ves­ti­gate.
