Australian rangers capture massive crocodile after 8-year search

A smaller crocodile, measuring nearly eight feet, was also captured, according to the newspaper.

Wildlife rangers capture around 250 "problem crocodiles" each year.

Tourists swim, canoe and take cruises in the gorge among freshwater crocodiles, a different species that are small, timid and rarely harm humans.

Following a almost decade-long hunt, a massive saltwater crocodile has been captured in northern Australia, according to wildlife authorities.

KATHERINE (Northern Territory), July 10 - An elusive monster saltwater crocodile weighing 600kg has finally been caught after an eight-year hunt in Australia, officials said this morning.

"We've called it a lot of things over the years because it's been so hard to catch", senior wildlife officer John Burke quipped.

"Yesterday afternoon rangers caught a 4.7m male saltwater crocodile in a trap on private property 60km downstream from Katherine", reads the post, which features a photo of the animal with six Parks and Wildlife employees to provide size comparison.

"They were surprised because it's unusual to find a croc of his size in that area", she said. Webb said that areas where saltwater crocodiles are the most sparse can be the most risky.

There are an estimated 100,000 saltwater crocodiles in Australia's Northern Territory.

NT Parks and Wildlife observed three large crocodiles during aerial surveys in May.

The crocodile population has exploded since they were declared a protected species in the 1970s, with the killing of an elderly woman past year reigniting calls to curb their numbers.
