Problem crocodiles otherwise resolved responses
Last updated 01 May 2020
The department’s response to a report will be in accordance with the Queensland Crocodile Management Plan. The outcome of the department’s response will be stated in the table. A problem crocodile may also be assessed as no longer a problem crocodile if it has moved to a low-risk situation or has stopped showing the behaviours that made it a problem crocodile.
This table contains all reports of estuarine problem crocodiles otherwise resolved by the department in this calendar month.
