The subject of the thread does not involve cheap shots at "greenies" but that didn't stop you.

It's easy to throw the labels around just because people don't support culling.

Geez that ColdFront character's comprehension skills are shot. I didn't blame the croc for anyone's dementia. I didn't call for a cull. I did assume someone from that side of the country will be calling for the croc's removal, possibly along with some of its bitey buddies. I also assumed someone might point out that the old people's home has been a safe place where grannies can be allowed to waddle around with their walking sticks a wee way from home without being eaten for quite some time. I also assumed the croc supporters would come out in an uproar at the very thought of moving the reptiles.

Sigh, so in jest/sarcasm, I suggested the home be moved. There you go. And I thought the little edit in my earlier would have covered all of that.

The croc is a good diversion from the fact this woman somehow ended up unsupervised at the nursing home despite her diagnosed dementia.

Can someone enlighten us as to how far the elderly lady with her walking stick had to walk before being eaten?


Edited by Jax (14/10/2017 20:49)
Edit Reason: To add "elderly" I think she's in her 80's, for the record

I feel awful for the family and friends of this poor woman and am sorry I bothered posting in this forum again. She wasn't a resident of the facility. ColdHeart's insinuation the staff were somehow at fault falls flat on it's face. The point of my poorly thought out and reactive question above was to highlight that people have a right to visit towns and built up areas and retirement homes in tourist meccas without the fear they will be attacked and or eaten by giant lizards. Katter might be a controversial Queensland character but he's got his priorities right on this one:

I don't have a cold heart Jax. That would mean I would have no concern for crocodiles and Great Whites . I simply rate these magnificent creatures higher than I rate the likes of you and have enough heart to want to leave some of this planet's wildlife for future generations to admire.

Police believe the 79-year-old, who suffers from dementia, may have wandered into the dense terrain just south of the Ozcare aged care facility where she was staying and become disoriented.

Hardly. But that's an interesting take on things from the far right. Thanks for sharing.

Instead it's the rantings of someone sick to death of the selfish attitude of those that move to an area rich in diversity and then expect that diversity to make way for their lifestyle choice. 4 deaths in Qld from crocs in quarter of a century. Oh noes, Cull time.

Man's lack of ability to coexist will be his downfall.

....and that Jax character groaned extensively at people from eastern states butting in when they had a couple of shark attacks in WA a few years back. Staggering double standard

....and there are various political forums open around the traps wink


Oh deary me, did I step on your poor little itty bitty ego?

If you tried I didn't notice. You are of no importance to me.

It did raise a brow slightly however that YOU made the link to the political thread and yet followed me over into this thread for your completely off topic rant. You're the first person I have seen mention its closure. Pick up the phone !

Maybe at least try to offer something to the actual topic?



Meanwhile.....

They breed 'em tough in India (or crazy depending on your viewpoint).

...and for those who are unsure, there is currently a crocodile control program in place in Queensland that works very well where crocodiles that display aggressive behaviour are removed (and often euthanized ). This is why a broad scale cull has been rejected. Katter wanted safaris and is a raving lunatic. How anyone can suggest that shooting an animal that lays motionless on a river bank is "sport" is beyond any rational mind.

In this case the woman walked to the mouth of Mowbray Creek and police suggest she may have waded in. The croc will be killed as it is policy to rule out foul play.

Crocodiles do not overpopulate. We do.

This may be the large specimen that is often sighted under the overpass on the highway upstream. It was thought to have met with foul play a few years ago before reappearing several months later.

Anyway, they are going to remove it as expected. Note the mayor's comments in the link.

The woman was from Canberra CF/CA/SG/JtH, staying briefly as a visitor. It doesn't matter, she was still killed by a crocodile within a nanny stagger from a retirement village. I did not call for a cull. I do agree with culling when it is needed. And that is the last time I'm motoring by this bridge, waste of time and others can do without your vitriolic replies to my every post here. You should have stuck with the name Callous Aussie, it suited you.

Too much sun?

I remember now why I blocked you last time with your playing the victim nonsense when calling for and supporting shark culls. Interesting given there are arguably far more crocodiles in Australian waters than Great Whites.

Your opening post here was a trolling effort (below)

Watch those sharks Jax.
