Don’t push your luck with crocs


Some people still think it is safe to go swimming in waterways across the Northern Territory in Australia, but Environment Department director of conservation and wildlife Brett Easton warns that they are taking huge risks by mistakenly assuming crocodiles do not inhabit them. “Some of the things that we heard continually is that it was fairly shallow and it was clear, and you could see very well,” he said, “or it was fast moving, so apparently crocodiles won’t come to fast-moving water”. “The classic is you send the dog in first, which, as you probably know, is a very good crocodile attractant.” See ABC

Yes I know, as I’ve been watching this movie while running at the gym last week :-P
