READER'S DISCUSS: Crocs have always been in Fitzroy River
A READER submitted a photograph this week of a crocodile soaking up some rays before taking a dip in the Fitzroy. Here are some of the comments left on the The Bulletin's Facebook page:
Jim Kent - To all of you who are shocked and want it removed...This is Central Queensland there are crocodiles here. Bull sharks kill more people in Australia then crocodiles and there are plenty of them in the Fitzroy river as well so should we remove all of them as well?
Terry Grant - Can't believe people are surprised to see crocs in the river. They've only been there a couple thousand years...
Linda Boulton - Crocs have yes been there for years and so on. But do we ask for certain crocs to be removed. YES. My opinion. Crocs at boat ramp should be a no go, but how do you stop the next one coming in.
Peter Watkins - How long will it be before someone is taken by this thing, around one of the boat ramps or a person fishing along the river banks ...Ita a JOKE. For Gods sake do something about it. Before it's too late....
Justin Bloomfield - This is hilarious. noone has ever opened their eyes obviously... been there always and always will.
John McGarry - Gavial creek - fresh water sewage outlet. Hmm i think there may be a link here. Salt water crocs need to drink fresh water and the council just happens to be providing a natural resource.
Karen Ricks - Thats not very comforting
