Emotive, yes it may be, but if you take the emotional rhetoric out of it just for a minute and examine the facts, this is good news for the outdoors-man:
“HUNTERS wanting to put a Northern Territory crocodile head on their mantelpiece may soon be in with a chance, after the federal government agreed to rethink a ban on killing the animals.” http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/breaking-news/nt-welcomes-croc-hunting-development/story-fn3dxity-1226395702179
The whole topic of trophy hunting for Australia’s Saltwater Crocodile has been an on-again off-again item for many years now. Protected since 1971, croc numbers have increased from an all time low of around 3,000 animals at the end of the commercial harvest era to an estimated 150,000 animals today.
