Crocodiles roam streets after storm

February 05, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Authorities in storm-battered northeastern Australia are warning residents to beware of crocodiles roaming the floodwaters covering large parts of Queensland.

One reptile was reportedly hit by a car.

"We've had sightings of three. . . . I'm not sure if it's the same crocodile moving around," Joyce Zahner, acting mayor of the Carpentaria region, told The Australian newspaper.

The paper said several dogs had gone missing.
