Croc Attack

Hearing about the german tourist who was taking by a croc last night was sad but only an accident waiting to happen.
I live in the Kimberleys in WA, where it is common knowledge that most waterways are full of crocs, but the ones to worry about are the salties.
Every year tourists come thru and swim in signed waterways that warn of crocodiles in the water. Usually in the crocodile mating season and few dogs are taken and cattle that bent down to get a drink from a waterway are killed.
But there are always horror stories....

Even CALM refuses to guarantee any croc free waterways.
Even the Dammed up water that is the local skiing, boating and swimming hole "may" have saltwater crocs in it.

So on your next visit to the wild north:
The way to stay safe would be don't swim at night, when crocs are most active.
Don't swim in Croc-infested water.....maybe don't swim at all, get in the bath or pool and you should be safe.
or carry a big knife like crocodile dundee and you should be right.
