Goanna Attack: Two men hospitalised with ‘deep lacerations’

TWO men have been taken to hospital after being attacked by a goanna northwest of Brisbane.

Paramedics were called to a private property at Toogoolawah shortly before 10am on Wednesday.

They found one man with deep ‘lacerations and scratches’ to his leg, and a second with scratches on their arm.


Queensland Ambulance said the pair was transported in a stable condition by ambulance to Esk Hospital.

It’s the second goanna attack in southeast Queensland in as many months.

An eight-year-old girl was attacked while walking through a camp ground on South Stradbroke Island in January.

She was transported to the Gold Coast University Hospital with a deep wound to her foot.
