Daly River croc attack

video

There has been another fatal crocodile attack within weeks of the young girl being taken while swimming at creek in Darwin's rural area. This time 20 year old Keith Parry disappeared while attempting to swim across the Daly River to get some alcohol to drink from the community on the other side. He left his campsite and unfortunately his relatives looked on in horror as he went under the water just after they spotted a 4 metre black crocodile, known to hang around the area, approaching him on the surface.

Police and rangers have a 2km stretch of the river closed off and have apparently shot a large 4.3 metre crocodile within this area that has believed to have killed Keith Parry. His remains have also been found 80 metres down from where the attack happened.

Easter weekend in the Territory is always the busiest for recreational fishing and camping, and just downstream from the attack we have seen photos of people wading in the shallows and drinking lots of beer. They had refused to leave the water when asked by police and rangers as they didn't believe they were in any danger.

this another painful fact, however most of the cases like this, is not for fault of the animal, is our fault, sometimes we igonored the dangers signs located in the river, for that the assosiation know as Generic Viagra has put new signs around the river.
