NEW DELHI: A crocodile that had terrorised a remote Australian community by ‘stalking and lunging’ at kids and adults and had eaten up dogs got cooked up by the locals ending up in a traditional feast, AFP reported.
The police, following consultations with elders and traditional landowners in the Bulla community, killed the reptile which was then cooked up in a “traditional meal” by the locals.“The community prepared it for a feast in the traditional manner,” they said.
According to Northern Territory police, the reptile which was almost 3.6 metre long had “been stalking and lunging out of the water at children and adults”.
“The crocodile had also reportedly taken multiple community dogs,” the statement said.
“I believe he was cooked up into crocodile tail soup, it was on the barbecue, a few pieces were wrapped up in banana leaves and cooked underground,” Sergeant Andrew McBride told Australian public broadcaster ABC.
“There was a rather large traditional feast,” he added.
Police said that the crocodile had migrated to a river close to residential areas following floods earlier this year. This river is situated approximately six hours’ drive south of Darwin.
