Recent crocodile sighting warning signs were posted by an EHP officer that same day.
EARLIER: A crocodile warning sign has been erected at Cannonvale Beach.
Residents took to social media to discuss the recent sighting.
"There's been a croc near Pigeon Island there since I was a child," Amanda Brett said.
"They have been sighted at the Marina and over at Port of Airlie, they are everywhere, you just rarely see them near the beaches."
"There was a croc sighting there a few years ago," Adeline Lahou.
"Of course they're going to be around! The estuaries are over crowded with them."
Meanwhile crocodile slide marks were reported to the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection at Whitehaven Beach earlier this month.
A site inspection and aerial survey was undertaken and revealed no evidence of a crocodile, the department said.
Recent crocodile sighting signs were deployed.
Meanwhile a shocked motorist spotted a cow being dragged into the Mary River by a crocodile.
The incident happened on Saturday as the woman drove across the Henry Palmer Bridge into Maryborough.
The woman, who asked not to be named, said she saw the cow on its side near the bridge and then saw the crocodile attacking it.
The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection has been contacted for comment.
