These Crocodile Trappers Have The Craziest Job In Australia
There's somethin' strange in your neighbourhood. Who ya gonna call?
The Northern Territory Parks Crocodile Management team work in hot, dirty, dangerous conditions.
If you live in the NT, they're the folk you call when a crocodile is menacing your chooks. Or your dog. Or you.
Like this 4.4m (14ft) bad boy, captured in the Daly River on Friday.
Key tools? Duct tape and cable ties.
There are estimated to be at least 100,000 wild crocodiles in the NT.
Most Northern Territory towns are on the coast or beside rivers. According to NT Parks and Wildlife: "many of the recreational activities enjoyed by Territorians, such as fishing, swimming, camping, boating, wildlife viewing and bushwalking, can bring people and crocodiles close together and the subsequent risk of a fatal attack is increased."
