On October 11, 2004 some families had been vacationing
on the beach near the Great Barrier Reef for 2 weeks.

That nite, a 14 foot long salt water crocodile
crawled out of the ocean and across the beach
to one of their tents, where thay were sleeping.
He entered the tent and grabbed Mr. Andrew Kerr
between his jaws and he began dragging Mr. Kerr
toward the ocean, against his will. Mr. Kerr protested
this imposition and his objections were heard by his fellows,
en route to the ocean, one of whom, Mr. Jason Sorohan
inquired into his luggage and therefrom took an automatic pistol
(of unknown calibration) from which he discharged 4 rounds
into the countenance of the aforesaid salt water crocodile,
who perished from this treatment and he released Mr. Kerr.

I am not at all certain of the legality of Mr. Sorohan's
being so equipped now. Mr. Kerr 's philosophy in this matter remains unknown.

if he had to.

@OmSigDAVID,
The balance of nature would not miss the salt water crocodile any more than it does the tyrannosaur.

Its a good thing that it will not miss him,
because he may have been stuffed or used for shoes and belts.
If I had taken him, I believe that he 'd have visited a taxidermist's shop.

I wonder what Tyrannnosaur leather was like.

U know that crocodiles have been found to be more closely related
to birds than to other reptiles, according to that show.
Thay look a little like low-slung, quadrupedal Tyrannnosaurs.

I found it a little surprizing that he coud take out the crocodile with a pistol,
unless it was of heavy caliber.

I hope that such defensive guns r still legal there, but I dunno.
Maybe some of our Austrailian friends will tell us.

@gungasnake,
and they all enjoyed a chickeny like meal of barbecued pre salted crocodile tail. Had this been the southern US that croc would have been strung up in a sling trap but a few steps out of the water.
AND Merkins know how to cook up their lizard

Crocodile Dundee coud also have handled that reptilian situation.
I heard that the Austrailians killed him.

@OmSigDAVID,
Ive eaten alligator tail and I dont think its worth the shouting. TAsted like muddy lizard with a hint of road kill mustiness.

They doused it up at the restaurants with RANCH DRESSING.

Course, I never ate it in the native lands other than Florida

@farmerman,
RANCH DRESSING???!!!!

That would make anything taste like ****!


I haven't eaten crocodile, but I hear from those who have that it is very nice. But cooked properly, not smothered in sweet fat.

I 've had them both in New Orleans and in NY.
I don 't know whether it was the tail or not.

In America, we still have the legal right to fight back,
if the reptiles start dragging us to the water, against our will.

Thay just played this show again, on AnimalPlanet; dramatic.
One of the combatants, an elderly lady, was given a commendation
by (the late) Steve Irwin concerning her participation in resisting the errant crocodile.
She was badly mauled; bad, deep, residual scarring.

Maybe the next time it happens,
thay can smack him with a newspaper until he is defeated instead of gunfire; I dunno.
