The Northern Territory (Australia) will now allow the keeping of baby crocodiles. That is until they reach 50 cms long which takes about a year. After that the baby crocs must be returned to the croc farm. So what happens when some escape into the local suburban areas????? In Australia crocs are now protected. Where I live crocs are becoming more commonplace on our beaches etc. Some years ago 10 I think, some boys beat a 10 foot croc to death in downtown (almost) Cairns. We lose a few people to crocs every year usually due to people’s stupidity like drunken swim on rivers etc where crocs live.
