Australian Outback Tales: Town’s Epic Battle Ends in Crocodile Cuisine

Australian Outback Tales Town's Epic Battle Ends in Crocodile Cuisine

After frightening a remote Australian town by snatching dogs and lunging at children, a saltwater crocodile was killed and its remains were prepared into a feast by the inhabitants.

Northern Territory police said in a statement that the 12-foot lizard “had been stalking and lunging out of the water at children and adults.”

“The crocodile had also reportedly taken multiple community dogs.”

According to authorities, on Tuesday, they shot and killed the scaly predator after speaking with traditional landowners and elders in the Bulla community.

“The community prepared it for a feast in the traditional manner,” they stated.

According to authorities, the crocodile moved into a river close to dwellings in the area, which is roughly six hours’ drive south of Darwin, after floods earlier this year.

According to Sergeant Andrew McBride, the animal was the primary component of multiple meals, as reported by ABC, a public broadcaster in Australia.

“I believe he was cooked up into crocodile tail soup, it was on the barbecue, a few pieces were wrapped up in banana leaves and cooked underground,” McBride stated.

Commander Kylie Anderson commended the officers and citizens for their close collaboration in resolving the situation, stating that “crocodiles can pose a significant risk to community safety”.

“Uses a risk-based strategic management approach to determine the level of management activity” for crocodiles is how the Northern Territory government describes how it manages the animals.

Due of their extreme mobility, crocodiles and humans have occasionally encountered danger in Australia. A crocodile attacked a fisherman’s boat in Queensland earlier this year on New Year’s Eve when the man was fishing in a creek.

Following an assault at a well-liked swimming location last year, the top lawmaker in Australia’s Northern Territory declared that it was “time to consider” going back to crocodile culling.

A guy assaulted by a crocodile in May 2023 while snorkeling off the coast of North Queensland, Australia, managed to escape by peeling the reptile’s jaws off of his head. Two of the reptiles contained the remains of an Australian guy who vanished while fishing in waters teeming with crocodiles that same month.
