Officers Seize Dingoes Kangaroo And More From Melbourne Resident

In most suburban areas of Australia, the most dangerous pet in your neighbours back yard might be a dog, or foul mouthed cockatoo. Imagine learning there are two crocodiles next door!

That's exactly what's happened for residents in the Melbourne suburb of Brighton East this week.

Officers from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning raided the suspect address on Monday, finding a menagerie of creatures, including dingoes and a rat-like Kangaroo. Unconfirmed, but locals have also reportedly heard crying cats and honking geese.

Seven dingoes were taken from the address along with the rat-kangaroo, which is native to rainforests in northern Australia. But the crocodiles were allowed to stay.

Authorities say the owner was issued with Notices to Comply for the two crocs and other animals to ensure they're being appropriately cared for.

So we bet you didn't know how cheap a crocodile permit is in Victoria. Only a cheeky $176.33.
