http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/2520815.stm The list of people that have been killed and eaten by this croc has been mostly little children or adolescents. I don't have a problem with conservationists wanting to protect this beast and study it for what?! there is nothing to study except that he should not be breeding to pass on his genes to create more of his kind. I think they even used a dog in a trap to lure this cunning beast but it wouldn't bite. Like I said if I was the parent of one of the victims of this beast I would have no problem with the conservationists protecting this beast as long as they put one of themselves(LOL) into the trap to catch this beast they admire and want to protect and then take it home and feed it. If I was the parent who lost a child to this prehistoric nasty shit and I had a chance to kill it, I would. If a conservationist tried to stop me then I would tie that fucker up and throw it in the water to be fed to it like it deserves! After all, it does need another meal to stay alive and the one that wants to protect it should be the first to give up their life!
