Author's notes

A local resident reported "On the 28th December 2016 I was on a walk with my dog and coming up Lonergan Drive Greenleigh. I was passing in front of 29 Lonergan Drive when I caught a whiff of something dead. I searched under the bushes there and could see nothing. I looked up and noticed my dog rolling on something across the road. I went over and found the carcass of a dead Rosenburg Goanna that appeared to have been run over about a week ago. It was located on the road verge at 19 Lonergan Drive"
