Human Remains Inside 4.3 Metre Crocodile Found Near Port Douglas

Human remains have been discovered inside a crocodile that is believed to have eaten an elderly grandmother.

Queensland police revealed on Monday a 4.3 metre crocodile was removed from the Mowbray River near Port Douglas, in Queensland’s tropical far north.

‘The crocodile, which is believed to be the one involved in the death of 79-year-old Anne Cameron, was examined by a specialist in Cairns [on Monday] with human remains being located inside,’ police officers said.

A report is being prepared for the coroner.

Ms Cameron was last seen in Port Douglas near an OzCare Aged Care facility last week.

Police believe Mrs Cameron 'wandered in there [a crocodile infested area] and gotten lost'

Her remains and walking stick were later found by police next to Craiglie Creek, connected to Mowbray River, less than two kilometres from the aged care facility.

Baited traps were set along the creek to capture the crocodile, which searchers believed hid in the muddy waters near mangroves.

Video footage showed the baited traps being set along the Mowbray River on Sunday.

Queensland environment and heritage protection wildlife director Michael Joyce said they will be targeted the entire 2.3km length of Craiglie Creek.

‘The traps will be baited with a portion of a pig’s carcasss, and we will also continue our attempts to do direct capture methods.

‘What we’re trying to do is entice the crocodile with a range of methods to maximise our chances of catching the target animal.’

Mr Joyce asked people to stay away from the area while the search was ongoing.

Queensland environment and heritage protection wildlife director Michael Joyce said they targeted the entire 2.3km Craiglie Creek

Ten wildlife officers who are ‘experts in crocodile behaviour’ and 10 other environment and heritage protection assisted with the search.

‘We believe she’s wandered in there [a crocodile infested area] and gotten lost, it’s our theory that she’s become disorientated and walked through that area,’ he said.

The Queensland Government is facing calls for stronger crocodile management measures, including culling.

The Katter’s Australian Party has renewed their calls for both sides of parliament to introduce more stringent management of crocodiles through their Safer Waterways Bill, which includes culling.

A pile of clothing was found next to a small creek connected to Mowbray River, believed to be less than two kilometres from Mrs Cameron's aged care facility

The bill would establish an authority to oversee a crocodile cull, egg harvesting and immediate removal or euthanasia for animals considered a threat.

The Queensland Government is legally allowed to kill a crocodile involved in a fatal attack, but must gain federal approval.

Earlier this year, Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg backed the calls for a tighter culling legislation.

‘In my book human life comes first and crocodiles second,’ he said, the Courier Mail reports.

The Queensland Government legally allowed to kill a crocodile involved in a fatal attack, but must gain federal approval

‘Such action properly considered and carried out would have my full support.’

One Nation party leader Pauline Hanson told Sky News the animals are ‘clearly a problem’.

‘We will lose tourism, we will lose lives, animals are being taken by the crocs,’ she said.

Together with the Katter’s Australian party, both minor parties support a cull to ensure similar accidents don’t occur again.

‘In north Queensland we face the risk and sometimes the ultimate price because governments are weak on this issue,’ party leader Bob Katter said.

The Sunday Telegraph alleged that Lisa was holding out on re-signing until she was granted ‘pay parity’ with co-host Karl Stefanovic, 43.

It was suggested the reason Lisa wanted the same money as Karl, was because he was ‘rumoured to be on twice as much.’

The publication estimated Karl’s three-year deal, which was inked by his friend and former Nine CEO David Gygnell, to be worth up to ‘$6 million.’

 Black smoke billowed into the air in Thornton after a school bus burst into flames at 8.45am

Sydney Archbishop Urges Parishioners To Vote ‘No’ To Same-Sex Marriage

Religious believers will be vulnerable to discrimination suits and some could lose their jobs if same-sex marriage is legalised, the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney says.

Anthony Fisher supported the ‘no’ vote in the postal survey during his homily at mass on Sunday, telling worshippers the government should ‘keep out of the friendship business and out of the bedroom’.

‘The state has no business telling us who we should love and how, sexually or otherwise,’ he told the St Mary’s Cathedral congregation on Sunday.

Anthony Fisher, the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, says religious believers will be vulnerable to discrimination suits and some could lose their jobs if same-sex marriage is legalised

‘The only kind of friendship the state has a proper interest in recognising and regulating is heterosexual marriage, because that’s what leads to children – new citizens – and gives them the best start in life.’

Archbishop Fisher said it was best for children to have a mother and a father, and that’s what marriage was about.

He said the vote had implications for religious freedom and it wasn’t unreasonable for people to say they couldn’t support a change to marriage laws until protections were in place.

‘If overseas experience is anything to go by, if marriage is redefined it will be very hard to speak up for real marriage anymore – in schools, at work, socially,’ he said.

Archbishop Fisher told worshippers the government should 'keep out of the friendship business and out of the bedroom'

'The state has no business telling us who we should love and how, sexually or otherwise,' he told the St Mary's Cathedral congregation

‘Traditional believers will be vulnerable to discrimination suits and other kinds of bullying for their beliefs. Some may lose their jobs, promotions, businesses, political careers.’

Archbishop Fisher previously weighed into the marriage debate last month when he and Dan White, the executive director of Sydney Catholic Schools, sent parents a letter encouraging them to vote ‘no’ in the postal survey.

The result of the voluntary postal survey will be announced on November 15.
