Croc caught in Australia after eating nine dogs

A 4.4-metre crocodile that had eaten up to nine pet dogs has been hauled out of a river in Australia’s north, a report said today.
The rogue croc was trapped at Daly River community, some 225 kilometres south of Darwin, where it was terrorising residents and animals, the Northern Territory News said.
Community police officer Mark Casey told the newspaper his office had nine reports of dogs being taken by a crocodile, believed to be the animal caught, in a month.
“Crocs are an ever-present danger but you don’t see them,” he said.
“They can sit for days on end on the other side of the river and watch you go fishing off the same log or rock — that’s how they hunt.
“Next thing you know, bang, the dog’s gone.”
