Crocodile snatches man from boat

  • A man was assaulted on Saturday, June 7, by a 15.5-foot-long crocodile when he went to empty a bucket on his boat, as per media reports. Reports suggest that his family was not successful at saving him and his remains have been discovered inside the animal. 

    An expert told media that it is not usual to have such attacks at this time of year. "Attacks usually occur in the warmer months of the year when the crocs are more active and they need more food."

    Media notes that help is not easy to get and mobile phone reception at Kakadu National Park is poor.
