No sense on rogue croc issue
I’VE been alive 63 years and the Magnetic Island swim has been conducted for 61 years.
But now it is in jeopardy because of a “rogue” crocodile.
Does this mean that all other crocs are subdued cuddly creatures that would curl up on your lap and purr with satisfaction as you watched your preferred reality TV show?
And why is it that this “rogue” is not trembling in his/ her scaly prehistoric skin knowing full well that Ranger “Dan” or “Simone” with their university education and fat salary with perks are on the job to curb the evil intentions of said “rogue”. I think not.
The reason the swim continued for so many years is that the common- sense fishermen who rowed handmade punts carried ex- army .303 rifles to cull these dangerous creatures and keep the human habit safe. NOEL DOHERTY, Condon.
