Earlier this year a Darwin woman was sleeping peacefully when she was woken by her dog going nuts outside her bedroom door . Can you imagine her surprise when she opened the door to find a 1.7 meter Salt water croc just chillin” out in her lounge room ! Her husband ( armed with his trusty guitar ) managed to edge past the croc and get to the phone to call animal management who came to the rescue , wrestling the croc into submission.
Apparently this croc , along with many others , escaped from the Darwin Crocodile farm around 6 years ago. Since then locals have complained they have had 15 crocs in their back yards over the last 5 years ..However the croc farm gave them a carton of beer and a croc trap as a consolation , gotta be happy with that ! ;D
