crocodile culling

Post  s8ntnick on Sat Mar 22, 2008 4:30 pm

culling term-removing or killing

this is a article on the issue of overpopulation(vast growth of crocidiles in queensland

after you read the article tell me your thoughts

AUSTRALIA: March 23, 2007


SYDNEY - Fears that crocodile numbers have exploded in northern
Australia, with more sightings off surf beaches, in swimming holes and
near towns, have sparked calls for the re-introduction of crocodile
culling.


But
a new saltwater crocodile conservation plan for the tropical state of
Queensland proposes instead to slap heavy fines up to A$7,500
(US$6,000) on swimmers caught in crocodile waters, as a means of
separating man from man-eater.
"It's a classic example of lateral thinking," Queensland politician Bob Katter said on Thursday in ridiculing the plan.
"Instead of removing the crocs, they're going to remove human beings,"
said Katter, who believes crocodile culling should be re-introduced as
the prehistoric-looking creatures venture closer to populated towns and
beaches.

Commercial hunting of crocodiles was banned in the 1970s, and many
people in northern Queensland believe crocodile numbers have exploded,
saying crocodiles now cruise beaches, boat harbours and freshwater
swimming holes used by locals and tourists.

Surf lifesavers at Forrest Beach near Townsville in northern Queensland
have spotted six crocodiles in the water since December.

"I think that there should be a bounty paid on crocodiles for a period
of time and in selected areas and I think that there should be proper
armaments provided to people to be able to do that cull," Katter told
local radio recently.
"Surely people have the right to protect their kids from a dangerous predatory animal," he said.
"Action needs to be taken to cull them and push them out of settled
areas. Shoot the bastards. The people who tell us we can't shoot them
would die of fright if they saw one." Another Queensland politician,
national Senator Ian Macdonald, who also backs crocodile culling, said
the new conservation plan favoured animals over humans.

"I'm a great conservationist, but when it comes to people's lives as
opposed to an explosion in crocodile population then I will always pick
people's lives. There will be a tragedy," Macdonald said.
But the Queensland Environment Minister Lindy Nelson-Carr rejected fears that crocodile numbers had exploded.
"It's more likely that more people are visiting or moving into croc
habitat, and so more people are noticing crocs," she said this week in
releasing the conservation plan.
"Saltwater crocodiles are a vulnerable species with only about 30,000 believed to be left in the wild in Queensland." But some crocodile experts estimate there could be 65,000 to 70,000 crocodiles in Queensland state. Nelson-Carr said the conservation plan was a balanced approach to managing crocodiles.
"In developing this plan, the Environmental Protection Agency aimed to
get the balance right between public safety, sustainable commercial use
of saltwater crocodiles and protecting these ancient, vulnerable
animals in the wild," she said.

"Crocodiles are one of Australia's native predators that keep the
ecosystem functioning and without them, Queensland would be a very
different place."

the camera man should have notice the stingray and not taken out the poisonous needle

he should have left it in there and just rushed to get the antibiotics
