Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS WHY I DO WHAT I DO -

Was it re­ally 10 years ago? Be­ing a stu­dent of his­tory, if not ac­tu­ally liv­ing in the past of­fi­cially, Co­conut notes it was 10 years ago this week that a lo­cal croc named Allan made it into the head­lines, lo­cally and prob­a­bly much fur­ther afield, by bit­ing an overly in­quis­i­tive tourist on the knee. Allan was a res­i­dent of Ma­son Creek at the time. Apa­prently a Bel­gian tourist walked to­ward the croc­o­dile and splashed the water in or­der to get a “bet­ter” photo. He did get a snap, just not the kind he wanted.
