Pops my opinion about crocs has got nothing to do with the Willie Creek tourism business and I don't think you should be saying anything about them as it has nothing to do with the way I may think about the subject.

Maybe your the one who should worry about your own business and see that you may be a bit bias. Seems like your main point of interest is making sure crocs are not around when your doing your tours.

Anyway I'm not going to start a bumfight in regards to croc culling as I know it will solve nothing .

I'm going to keep on saying what I think in regards to crocs and I respect your opinion as well so maybe we should just agree to differ and leave it at that..

My "what a world" comment was reference to the fake news article. It sucked in someone in Cairns area that should have known better as it quotes the Cairns Times. There is no Cairns Times.

Someone must have a sick bent mind to write that crap.

There you go ,don't believe everything you read...

I know it has happened a similar thing with a bear once in the USA with dire consequences and he was definitely high on drugs.

Thought someone may have put this one up earlier:

http://www.cairnspost.com.au/news/cairns...e907-1505019457

How good is the Cairns Post laugh laugh I'm sure other places reported the croc to be 2m and was measured as such.

Can't read this but I think the French have got some good advice when one is confronted by a crocodile. frown

I cant open that link Ron..

Here's a non subscriber link..

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-09-22/sh...arnings/8974326

What a shame to kill that old dinosaur...I wonder if he had been a resident there for long or had moved from somewhere more remote..?

Jebus I hate these friggin newspaper links, I just googled it and up it came, no chance of me subscribing to any of their crap.

I heard it was a resident and the removal of such a big animal will surely cause young brazen crocs to enter in on a turf war. *As your link metioned pogo, lol.

It said that on one hand Ron, then next thing, If we knew about we would have removed it.

Whats the difference between removing it and someone shooting it I wonder ?

Same outcome!

(As I understand it, maybe I've got it wrong)

ie-

There are concerns the shooting death of a 5.2-metre crocodile will create a power vacuum in the local population with warnings younger crocs will become "increasingly aggressive" as they fight for the position left vacant.

"If this iconic crocodile had been reported to us, officers would have immediately taken steps to remove it, in accordance with the Queensland Crocodile Management Plan."

Bit contradictory hey Samboz, why would you remove a croc that helps keep the balance? Obviously known to at least some locals otherwise it wouldn't have been shot.
