Remains found in crocodile believed to be missing Queensland pensioner”

"Ten EHP wildlife officers who are experts in crocodile behaviour, biology, ecology and management are on the ground here in Port Douglas, with the support of another 10 EHP staff".

Mr Artiemiew said he believed the animal was a recent arrival to the Craiglie water system and local wildlife officers did not recognise it.

Human remains have been found in a crocodile believed to have killed an elderly woman in the far north of Australia's Queensland state.

Police later found clothing, a walking stick with her name and human remains beside a crocodile-infested creek near Four Mile Beach, about a mile from the aged care facility. The woman reportedly became disorientated on a walk and headed into thick vegetation.

Queensland Police today confirmed the 4.3-metre estuarine crocodile had been removed from Mowbray River near Craiglie overnight, just under a week after the much-loved grandmother went missing.

Environment Minister Steven Miles said the crocodile was euthanised.

"It was very emotional for all those members involved".

Police investigations continue with officers preparing a report for the Coroner.

The body of 35-year-old Warren Hughes was found two days after the spearfisherman's dinghy and speargun were discovered off Palmer Point, near Innisfail in far north Queensland.

A 47-year-old man was killed by a crocodile after wading into a river crossing near Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory.

The creek where Ms Cameron's items were found is inhabited by crocodiles.
