‘In­sane goobers and ul­tra gronks’

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Shane Ni­chols

FOR the se­cond time in three weeks, Port Dou­glas and croc­o­diles have made it to the far­thest cor­ners of the global me­dia land­scape.

The ex­ploits of sev­eral lo­cal men who swam in and around a croc­o­dile trap in Dick­son In­let in re­cent days fol­lowed hard on the heals of cov­er­age of the death of Mrs Anne Cameron, be­lieved to have died in a croc at­tack in Craiglie.

One web­site, pitched at a youth de­mo­graphic, called the men “in­sane goobers” and “ul­tra gronks”.

The UK dailies were nearly as colour­ful, in­spired by the con­dem­na­tion dished out by state Min­is­ter Stephen Miles and Mayor Ju­lia Leu who were quick to la­bel the fool­ish ac­tions of the men in be­ing around a baited croc trap.
