Human remains found inside crocodile amid search for missing fisherman

Human remains have been found inside a crocodile in Australia — as authorities hunt for a missing fisherman they fear was eaten by one of the reptiles.

Andrew Heard, 69, went fishing near Hinchinbrook Island in northeast Queensland, on Thursday afternoon but never returned, the Independent reported.

Heard’s wife, Erica, alerted police, who found his capsized boat in Gayundah Creek, between Cairns and Townsville, at 2:30 a.m. Friday, according to the news outlet, which said human remains were found nearby.

Members of the Department of Environment and Science later caught two crocodiles near the boat’s location as part of the probe and euthanized them on Saturday.

One of the crocs — measuring 14 feet long — contained human remains.

“Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time following confirmation from [Queensland police] that the crocodile captured yesterday is believed to be the animal involved in the disappearance of a man,” the DES said in a tweet.
