Healesville Sanctuary and the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) are warning rogue anglers to stop illegally using opera house nets after another Platypus was found dead in the Bunyip River this month.
The dead Platypus, a female, was found trapped in one of three opera house nets tied to a log in the river near Labertouche in West Gippsland.
"Although the Platypus is still listed as common, but we have noticed a decline in their number over recent years," Jessica Thomas, Platypus Keeper, Healesville Sanctuary said.
