What’s trending on social media this week
IT’S not every day you see video of a croc dragging a cow down a river.
Yes, you read right. A croc, dragging a full-grown cow, down a river.
The incredible footage, caught on a drone camera, made headlines around the world after surfacing on Facebook this week.
The video shows a massive “five, six-metre” croc swimming down a river in Western Australia with a cow clamped between its jaws. According to the barramundi fisherman who spotted the croc while filming a promotional video, the monster reptile dragged the cow off the river bank.
The video quickly went viral after Queensland family the Lorrimers, who are travelling around Australia in a caravan, shared it on their Facebook page: Trip In A Van.
In two days the video had been viewed more than half a million times.
Justin Lorrimer said at one stage the croc tried to pull the cow under water.
“An amazing display of how powerful these big creatures are!”
