Giant croc footprints are another scary sign our beaches aren't safe

Massive claw prints left on the sand by a gigantic crocodile at a popular Far Northern beach have sparked serious concerns for public safety at local beaches.

A local resident took to social media to share photos of the giant claw prints on Cooya Beach - which resemble something out of Jurassic Park.

"Hi everyone, please be aware when walking on Cooya Beach, this crocodile foot/claw print was on the northern end this morning, probably parallel to where the Cooya Esplanade/Bougainvillea St ends and has the turn around.

"The tape measure is showing inches so it would probably be around 35-38cm. It's a big bugger!"
