High risk? crocodile attack areas identified



YOU are at highest risk of being attacked by a croco- dile in the fresh section of the Fitzroy River at Bel- mont, the Alligator Creek junction boat ramp, and be- tween Mackenzie Channel to Lindley's Road.

Those areas were identi- fied by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service as "high risk sites'' in a new report released this week.

The Morning Bulletin re- ported on Tuesday Rock- hampton City Council's dis- satisfaction with recommendations contained in the report, which was commissioned after a croco- dile emerged near skiers at Laurel Bank last December.

The council had unsuc- cessfully lobbied for any crocodiles observed during the survey process to be removed.

A total of 88 focal points where people and crocodiles are likely to come into con- tact were recorded during the risk assessment survey. The barrage to the up- stream side of Six Mile Re- serve was identified by QPWS as a "low risk'' site.

Rockhampton City Coun- cil and QPWS will meet fur- ther to discuss crocodiles.
