Dead Dain­tree croc not shot

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE death of a croc­o­dile on the Dain­tree River re­mains a mys­tery, how­ever En­vi­ron­ment and Her­itage Pro­tec­tion of­fi­cers have ruled out foul play.

There was spec­u­la­tion on so­cial me­dia the an­i­mal, whose body was found on Sun­day, had been shot, how­ever a Depart­ment spokes­woman con­firmed this was not the case.

What killed the croc­o­dile is un­likely to ever be known for sure, with the spokes­woman say­ing it was “not pos­si­ble to de­ter­mine the cause of death due to the con­di­tion of the car­cass”.
