Weight off mind as Australian officials finally catch monster croc

Sydney: A monster saltwater crocodile weighing 600 kgs has finally been caught in Australia, ending an eight-year hunt for the elusive beast, reported AFP. The 4.7-metre (15.4-foot) beast, estimated to be 60 years old, was found in a trap downstream from the town of Katherine after first being spotted in 2010.

“We’ve called it a lot of things over the years because it’s been so hard to catch,” senior wildlife officer John Burke told broadcaster ABC.

“It is a bit of a thrill, but you’ve also got to admire the size of the animal and how old it is. You’ve got to have a bit of respect for it.”

Northern Territory wildlife operations chief Tracey Duldig said the gigantic animal was taken to a crocodile farm to keep it separate from the local human population. “He is the biggest crocodile ever removed from the Katherine River by the Wildlife Operations Unit,” Duldig said in a statement.
