Rangers in the Northern Territory say they are "extremely worried" about people continuing to swim in creeks and waterways, putting their lives at risk of a crocodile attack.
"DO NOT SWIM IN CREEKS, RIVERS OR CAUSEWAYS," a warning issued on the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife's Facebook page said, after the Crocodile Management team removed a 3.6 metre saltwater croc from a culvert near Howard Springs.
The crocodile was found near where a dog was eaten a few weeks ago and at the exact culvert where 3.5 metre crocodile was removed on Saturday.
"These #crocodiles are more than capable of eating a human and Rangers are aware that people have been swimming in this location," the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife said on Facebook.
"Swollen creeks and high water levels in the wet season create crocodile superhighways, allowing them to easily move into places they are not often found."
The national park service is asking people to not risk their lives for a swim and be "crocwise".
Earlier this year, a man snorkelling off the Great Barrier Reef was attacked by an estuarine crocodile.
The man was airlifted to Cairns Hospital after being treated at the scene.
The 69-year-old man went fishing in Gayundah Creek in the Hinchinbrook Island area and was expected to return an hour later but never did.
Several days later human remains were found, before two crocodiles were caught and killed by Department of Environment and Science officers.
