Crocodile risk: Broome council getting snappy over warning sign thefts for souvenirs

Written on the 15 March 2017

Thieves have been accused of putting lives at risk by stealing crocodile warning signs from popular beaches in the northern WA town of Broome.

The signs have been repeatedly targeted by people looking for a souvenir, prompting the local Shire to warn that beachgoers are being put in danger.

The signs are used to warn beachgoers to avoid the water because of the risk of attack.

Crocodiles up to 3 metres long are common in the area and swimming spots are regularly closed due to sightings.
