Shock beheading of crocodile in Northern Australia


The shock beheading of a crocodile has been reported to the Australian Federal Police this week after a crocodile’s body was discovered by park rangers under a bridge on the Arnhem Highway.

Evidence from an AFP forensic investigation suggests the crocodile was first shot with a gun an800px-Crocodylus_acutus_mexico_01d then beheaded.

A spokesman for the Federal Police stated that “any attack on animals is not tolerated, but to have someone attack a protected species like a crocodile in one of our national parks in this manner is sickening.”

Under Australia’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, killing a native species carries a penalty of up to two years’ imprisonment, a fine of $180,000, or both, ABC news reported today.

Meanwhile in the Middle East, humans are being beheaded or having limbs removed on a daily basis.

This is not satire.

The XYZ.
