Crocodile in the Daintree River

Queensland Senate Puts Crocodiles on Notice

It sounds like a job for Mick Dundee.

Though you’re unlikely to find any crocodile hunters taking on the dangerous reptiles armed only with a knife. Even if it’s a big knife.

Concerned about the rising potential for human casualties from crocodile encounters, a Queensland senator has urged the state government to consider culling the animals.

The Liberal National Party’s James McGrath says that crocodiles are encroaching more and more on human areas, thus posing a risk to humans as well as live stock.

On Tuesday, Senator McGrath told parliament that ‘A sustainable crocodile cull should be considered by the Queensland state government. Humans first, crocodiles second’.

Queensland Labor senator Anthony Chisholm said the federal Labor Party supports the rights of the states to manage the issue. However, he did not oppose Mr McGrath’s motion, which passed on the voices, according to AAP.

A potential cull was also backed by Pauline Hanson. The Senator says that crocodiles were the cause of both human and animal deaths around Townsville and Cairns, AAP reports.

The One Nation Leader said:

People have lost their lives because of crocs and they’re moving south’.
