Over the past month 9 pet dogs in the Daly River township mysteriously disappeared without a trace. Aliens have been ruled out now , as it has been discovered an evil 4.4 meter crocodile had taken a liking to people’s pets. And not because these dogs were wandering around a river bank , nope , this croc was that cheeky a bloke spotted him one night lying under a mango tree in his backyard ! When I first moved to the NT I remember asking if crocodiles hung out in people’s yards and I was laughed at. Well this is the second report of this happening in the last 6 months – remember in March I blogged about the family that woke up to a salty in their lounge room ?? So the person who laughed at the thought is probably not the right person to advise any newbie to the NT about croc safety …
I personally wanted to hunt down this horrible animal and kill him myself ( not that I have any idea how to – aim and shoot ??) but the experts bet me to it. Yesterday was a victory for the dogs of Daly River as the croc was trapped and caught by rangers. You can check out the video here.
On the way to the croc farm the rangers had to get fuel and pulled into the servo , croc and all …….
Yep , only in the Territory ……..
