Dinosaur guards abandoned car

IT is not exactly the monster from the black lagoon, but there was a creature out along Clothiers Creek Rd at Clothiers Creek which is bemusing and intriguing passers-by.

Sitting stuck on the boot of a crashed car, embedded in a shallow swamp on the edge of a cane field, is a Tyrannosaurus Rex toy.

This fearsome creature was doing a terrific job keeping would-be thieves away from the contents of the white Holden Apollo because all the personal items, which are strewn throughout the car, are still there.

The T-Rex is a plastic creature firmly stuck to the boot lid - whether it was placed so after the occupants vacated the vehicle in a bid to ward off robbers or it is a quirky adornment to the Apollo is not known.
