YOU’VE HEARD THAT urban myth about crocodiles living in city sewage systems, right?
Well, he’s not a big ‘un but this baby croc gave locals in Cairns, Australia a fright when he emerged blinking from a drain yesterday. This Associated Press video shows how to deal with such a situation…
- Arm yourself adequately against the croc’s sharp teeth. A household broom and pair of flip flops should do it.
- Poke him a bit.
- Take video footage on your smartphone.
- Poke some more and then when he reacts, throw a towel over him.
- Call in the animal welfare officers who can put an elastic band on his snout and remove him to safety.
