A 2.87 metre saltwater crocodile has been transported to Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park after it was captured yesterday.

The male croc was initially sighted by a member of the people at 10am yesterday at the Broome Port Slipway.

A Parks and Wildlife spokesman said staff and Yawuru Rangers then used modified harpoon, grapple hook and fishing techniques to capture the reptile at Entrance Point, conveying it to the Park around 1pm yesterday.

If you see a crocodile in Broome please report it to the Parks and Wildlife Service Broome office on 9195 5500.
