Monster croc slide sighted in the Fitzroy freshwater

A READER has reported seeing a huge croc slide on the bank of the Fitzroy River, a metre wide, and only a couple of hundred metres away from a rope swing into the river.

The slide on the bank, showing where a crocodile had slid from the sand bank into the water between Long Island and Alligator Creek, is reported to be about one metre across and suggests a monster crocodile is lurking in the waters.

The man also reported two other crocodiles on the riverbank last night upstream of Pink Lily. 

Last week, workers at Teys Bros, Lakes Creek Meatworks reported seeing a smaller crocodile in the river near the meatworks.
