    Australia Queensland - Police confirm human remains found in crocodile is Arthur Book

    Police confirm human remains found in crocodile is Arthur Booker

    POLICE have confirmed that the human remains found in a 4.3-metre crocodile in far north Queensland are those of 62-year-old Arthur Booker.
    Mr Booker, from Logan in Brisbane's south, was last seen heading to check crab pots on the Endeavour River near Cooktown on September 30.
    The Vietnam veteran and his wife Doris were on a two-day holiday at a campsite on the river.
    A four-day search failed to find any sign of Mr Booker, other than two sandals and his wristwatch.
    A memorial service was held for him last month.
    Authorities found the crocodile responsible but decided it should not be destroyed or released back into the wild, but kept at an undisclosed crocodile farm.
    Forensic scientists revealed Mr Booker's identity at the John Tonge Forensic Laboratory yesterday.
    The matter has now been referred to the coroner.

    The search for a missing Logan man, feared to have been taken by a crocodile in Far North Queensland, is continuing.

    If the crocs and the Great White Sharks don't go in the pubs I don't go in the water.

    I can't understand why they just don't put all the crocodiles into zoos or farms, seems a bit dumb allowing dangerous animals to wander freely, also make it easier to supply skins for shoes and belts and bags which is basically a crocodiles only use

    How do they find the human remains inside the croc without killing the croc?

    They chuck a huge drainage pipe in the mouth and then flood with water

    I've been told that swimming with salties is tantamount to suicide, whereas with great whites it depends upon whether they are hungry!

    I would have to agree.

    If you jump into a pool of salties, you would get chomped no matter what.

    If you jump into a pool of great whites, I think if they are not hungry they leave you alone.

    The difference is the salty kills and stores its food away for later...so he might chomp you know and hide you under a log to feast on a week later.

    I swam in a lagoon/creek in the NT many years ago after a very hot day of work. We continued working down the creek side and later saw a rather large dead cow on the banks half in and half out of the water. Don't know if a croc did it or not....but certainly was croc territory around.

    Another Pommy guy that worked with us, he swam across a river from the campsite to the town side and this river was full of crocs....particulalry a 18 footer that lived around the next bend.

    His excuse was ignorance....but he walked away.

    I have seen aboriginals swimming in croc rivers and lagoons, don't know how they know or get away with it....maybe the smell.
    I like poisoning my neighbours dogs till they die cos I'm a cnut
