First Fraser Coast crocodile sighting of the year

THE Fraser Coast has its first reported crocodile sighting of the year.

The animal was spotted at Big Tuan Creek on Tuesday.

The Fraser Coast was considered an atypical habitat zone and any crocodile found in the region would be targeted for removal.
