Croc Capture Tale

Men catch croc in Cairns
Wednesday 12 April 2000

People in northern Queensland have been warned to beware of crocodiles after two brothers caught one in a creek in the centre of Cairns on Sunday night.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service ranger Brian Wright said the crocodile could have swum into the creek after heavy rains and high tides.

Brothers Adam and Gary Leszczewicz caught the 1.8-metre crocodile in Fearnley Creek near the centre of Cairns while netting for bait.

They pulled it from the creek, tied it up with their net and took it home, where they put it in a pig cage until Parks and Wildlife officers collected it on Monday.

Six months ago the brothers pulled a 1.4-metre crocodile from the same creek.

"It's just a juvenile crocodile but it will chew your leg and could get pretty fierce if it feels threatened," Mr Wright said of the latest catch.

He warned that it was extremely dangerous for untrained people to handle crocodiles.


I table this unfortunate revolutionary setback field report about the antipodean movement as a precursor to an acceleration of activity leading up to the Olympic Games. Our plans are working. We are the nihilists, the wreckers, the despoilers, the defacers of the bunyip aristocracy. Stay away and be safe!

According to Australian aboriginal folk-lore a 'bunyip' is a man- eating bellowing monster from the billabong, aka Scarlet's muvver-n-law...

It is also used as a term meaning 'imposter', eg the born-to-rule freakz of the Victorian Liberal Party - thus bunyip aristocracy with pretention and a champagne taste on a beer income.

It's great to have a logo of Chapter 11. I've saved it to disk with devious intent-a-planning.
