You can't tell me the decision to shoot that croc is any worse than the decision to wade across the crossing. I'm flabbergasted. This guy knew the area, knew the risk and tried to cross anyway... Hard to believe he lived to 47 years old

I visited that location years ago and my nerves couldn't take the risks people seemed to be taking while multiple crocs were clearly visible.

Yeah it is notorious for crocs and some of the video of cars being washed off the causeway and people walking through knee deep water have me scratching my head at the stupidity of some people.

I would say they caught 'a' croc off the innisfail wharf. I have my doubts as to it being the one that grabbed the young fella. His injuries don't quite represent what a 4m croc is likely to do to a human arm

Broome also getting into the killing fields ...

I like the way they say that they had no option but to shoot it after attempts to trap the animals it failed .

What a load of [censored].

The crocs were too smart to go into the traps but one escaped so I guess the you beaut markmans will be at every headland waiting for the poor animal to come swimming past.

Great for tourism ..not.. "come and watch the dead crocs floating around"..

Croc shot dead in Broome

Loc: Cable Beach - Broome WA
I spoke to one of the shire workers this morning at Cable Beach and they were the ones who saw it when mulching and planting at the Surf Club. A dozen people in the water, surfers, a family with kids on boogie boards and the croc on the surface and swimming directly towards them. The guy sprinted down the beach to warn them and get out. He seemed pretty legit and very concerned about what he saw.

I am not sure if what may have happened would have been great for tourism Des. There comes a time when if a croc shows an aggressive approach like it did and it has been hanging around for several months then something needed to be done. Its unfortunate for sure but it was very close to being an incident on Cable Beach. The other one is the fella from Willie creek coming out to chase this one down. He has done this now a number of times over the years and is responsible for quite a few of the media publicity of crocs in Broome. I know the Croc at Willie Creek is a bit of an attraction for Willie Creek but when tourist numbers drop after a potential attack no doubt they will be complaining and wondering why numbers of visitors to town have dropped.
