Giant Croc Northern Territory Australia

05 May

A MONSTER 6.5m crocodile had to be killed by locals in a remote Northern Territory Aborigine community because it was killing their cattle.

Jeida Francis, 23, said the croc was caught in Manangoora, an outstation 56km east of Borroloola.

“It was massive. There were three huge ones out there. One of them is still out there at the moment.

Wow… that’s a BIG croc

“It is pretty well fed,” he said of the dead saltie.

“It took two LandCruisers to pull it out. They have one croc that is still out there. He should be getting to this size by now.”

Mr Francis said he spent his childhood growing up with the predators.

“We used to get dugong bones to feed them, to keep them from feeding on our goats … this one was getting too nasty and too close. It was attacking our cattle.”

      Greetings my friend Jasmine, we certainly have many big crocodiles in Australia but they are mainly in the northern part of Australia, we do have to be careful when camping or fishing but if we leave them alone then its okay, sometimes they become dangerous.
      Hope you are keeping well Jasmine and its always great to have your visits.

    That sounds like a fun and exciting job: how does one train for croc hunter?

      Thanks for the visit and glad you enjoyed that pic.
      To become a good croc hunter you must first be a good runner and be able to run a mile in 5 seconds, hehe
      Wishing you a great weekend my friend.

    AAARGH – HORROR, horror. That photo of it alongside the truck really puts it into perspective.

    I love this newsflash, Ian. In fact, I’m going to make it my highly recommended of the week, if you don’t mind :). I’m proud of your site as so dang Aussie – you’re totally out there in the outback. I live in this land and don’t see what you do.

    I love also your respected interest in Aboriginal culture.

    I was in the sauna the other day & this guy said that the REAL Aboriginal race is dying out quickly, as each Elder drops. His view is that the generation of now do not have the soul of those yesterday. I’m not qualified to comment as I’m so cloistered in my little white neighbourhood. We started out talking about the film of the Aboriginal female singers that’s out now (or was then – is on video now).

    Your site is choice, Ian.

      Thanks for visiting my friend and for your great comment, glad you find my site informative and enjoyable.
      The real Aboriginals are still alive and do not live in the cities or towns but in the outback such as Oodnadatta and beyond, they are slowly coming under white mans influence which sadly over generations will see them decline, the elders pass on their culture but it is slowly fading as their race interbreeds with the white people.
      I watched a movie called Ten Canoes the other day and found it fantastic, highly recommend it to you if you want to see the Aboriginal peoples of the Dreamtime.
      Cheers and my best wishes to you and Daniel.

    I’d say by the look of him, he’s swallowed a few cattle. It’s a shame they have to kill him, i’ve never seen a Croc look that big before….
