A crocodile terrorizes a town in Australia – shot by police

The crocodile was shot in the northern Australian town of Bulla on Wednesday after police assessed it posed a significant danger to the community. The Northern Territory State Police wrote in a statement that the crocodile, which was 3.6 meters long, was chasing and attacking children and adults. She also allegedly killed several dogs.

In order not to waste the meat, the crocodile was cooked in the traditional way. They cooked soup on the tail and grilled parts of the meat, some of which was wrapped in banana leaves and cooked underground.

“It was a very large traditional party, and there were quite a few full bellies,” says police officer Andrew McBride.

Saltwater and freshwater crocodile It is a protected species in Australia. Hunting of the animals has been prohibited since 1971, but over the years the number has increased significantly, and there are now about 100,000 crocodiles in the Northern Territory. The state government said this species, which lives in salt water, can grow six meters long and weigh up to a ton and eats almost anything.

Every year, park rangers in northern Australia relocate hundreds of saltwater crocodiles that threaten humans in populated areas. Sometimes reptiles kill people.

Last year, the remains of a 64-year-old fisherman were found inside a crocodile in Queensland.

In April, a 16-year-old boy was killed in North Queensland when his boat broke and he tried to swim to shore.

In January, a nine-year-old boy survived a crocodile attack in Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory. He was taken to hospital due to injuries.
