Heres a pic that I just rediscovered at Willie Creek in 2011.

I know this may seem a bit strange but every year we get Black Swans come into the area from the south ,and that's what is on the shoreline in the background. I had seen a croc take one of those swans early a few mornings after this pic was taken.

People like this are why we should allow crocs to eat people without retribution.

Always sad to hear that someone has been eaten by a croc.

But it seems like they have been teaching the crocs in the Adelaide River to preform to grab things that are dangled in front of them for the tourist boats and then when they do attack someone because they are right in front of them like a piece of meat they have to be exterminated for what they are being trained to do.

Something is not right there. crazy

It is being reported that he actually entered the water despite knowing full well it was croc territory. I find it hard to be sympathetic when the end result is a dead croc through no fault of its own.

....and due to its unusual colouring with an albino head it was reportedly a 1 in 100 million rarity.

What a croc of Sh!te!! Looks like Pat Chappell the tour guide banging out a figure of 1 in 100 million needs to be a bit more realistic. Stupid media for jumping on that quote. Feel sorry for the fella. But he is a bit stupid wading out to unsnag a $5 rig.

Considering the Croc 'Michael Jackson' has been a regular jumper on the Adelaide Jumping croc tours says there needs to be some considerable management put into place. I don't know what do people think?

I have never agreed with the jumping tours. In my oppinion it will lead to someone getting killed in a boat. However this death was from someones stupidity of going into the water to retrieve a snagged lure. Nothing to do with crocs associating boats with food.

Yeah as with orebounds linked article it shows a big pile of discarded catfish at the head of the clearing. No wonder that croc was sitting there waiting for an easy feed. I guess he wasn't expecting a human to wade into the water instead.

Don't think the so-called "training" of them would have much of a bearing on the end result really. Fact remains that the very same outcome can and will occur on any of the hundreds of rivers and creeks around the Top End should someone be stupid enough to put themselves in harms way by venturing too close to the waters edge. It's certainly not a result of training that a croc is having a crack at anything near the rivers edge, they have been doing it for millions of years whether it be a bird, a pig, cattle, or in this a case a person.

Simple fact remains, people only get attacked when entering the croc's habitat so as sad as it is, given the significant number of awareness programmes, there comes a point when these unfortunate incidents can only be put down to Darwinism.

Training them to jump up to grab a feed may not have much to do with taking a human from a river but just maybe it has a lot to do with why they may be congegated in a certain area at any one time.
If the feeding of crocs can make them stay in an area for an easy feed then why wouldnt they just remain around the area and feed of whatever comes along ..e.g a fisherman who strays into the water??
Could happen anywhere I know but if your attracting them ,then arent you increasing the chances.
