Crocodile that lunged at children caught and cooked into ‘traditional feast'

A crocodile that terrorised an Aboriginal community was shot and cooked up by locals who devoured it in a ‘traditional feast’.

The reptile, measuring in at a whopping 3.63m, ‘moved into’ the River Baines in Australia’s Northern Territory. 

It followed after mass flooding in the region earlier this year, according to authorities. 

Since January, the croc had been ‘stalking and lunging out of the water at children and adults’ in the town of Bulla. 

Nor were people the only targets.

Police said the large saltwater crocodile had also ‘taken multiple community dogs.’

Authorities added in their recent statement on the matter that following discussions with members of the local Aboriginal community in Bulla, the animal was shot.

This was so that ‘it did not continue to pose a significant risk to the community.’

The animal was then prepared to be served as part of ‘a feast in the traditional manner.’

Namely, the crocodile was placed ‘on the barbecue’ and subsequently ‘cooked up into crocodile tail soup.’

Additionally, a number of cuts of meat were also ‘wrapped in banana leaves and cooked underground.’

Local sergeant Andrew McBride told press: ‘It was a rather large traditional feast and there were a few full bellies.’

As the result of widespread following in western parts of the region earlier this year, the animals have been increasingly ‘popping up where they’ve never been seen before.’

McBride said: ‘The amount of water’s just pushed them into random places.

‘This is obviously one of those crocodiles that’s gone for a bit of a swim and a walk and popped up very close to residents.’

Commander Kylie Anderson added: ‘Crocodiles can pose a significant risk to community safety.

‘Thanks to the seamless collaboration between Parks and Wildlife, our remote police staff and local residents, we were able to safely remove the large saltie and maintain the safety of the community.’
