The official Facebook handle of Queensland Environment shared about the incident. Here's what happened.

Queensland wildlife officers played an unexpected game of 'What's in your chicken coop?' when they found not a feathered friend, but a crocodile making itself home in a chicken house. The Queensland Department of Environment, Science and Innovation said wildlife officers were called to a house near Cape Hillsborough, north of Mackay when the residents noticed what they initially believed to be a goanna but later turned out to be a crocodile.

The official Facebook handle of Queensland Environment also shared about the incident. They informed, "Our Wildlife Officers safely removed the 1m estuarine croc in a large PVC tube for transportation to the department’s facility in Mackay. The croc will remain in our care until our officers find it a new home, at a licensed farm or zoo. Fortunately, all chickens and pets living on the property have been accounted for."
