A crocodile has mauled a woman while she was swimming at a popular tourist spot in Western Australia.

NollyScoop reports that the freshwater croc bit the 38-year-old on her leg while enjoying a dip at Butler Cove, Lake Argyle, in the remote Kimberley region.

The woman who sustained serious injuries to her leg was rushed to Kununurra Hospital before being taken to Broome Regional Hospital in a stable condition.

A 2.5metres long crocodile was later spotted in the area after the attack and has since been shot by authorities.

The Department of Biodiversity and Conservation sent a crew to patrol the area on Tuesday and saw a crocodile of a similar size to the one that attacked the woman.

The department said, “The behaviour of a crocodile approaching the boat and the events of the previous day is consistent with what staff would identify as a problem animal.

“In order to ensure public safety… and with consideration to large community events such as the annual Lake Argyle swim taking place this weekend, staff destroyed the animal.”
