Club bares fangs for crocodile’s vandals
A FIBREGLASS crocodile that became a viral internet sensation during the March floods has been smashed by vandals.
The Port Douglas Crocs AFL club mascot is in pieces after falling victim to a senseless attack over the weekend.
Club president Chris BradFOR sworth has taken to social media to try to find the culprit.
“This big fella has been used in clink theatre productions, game day at the Crocs, he has been a favourite with kids to climb on and recently gained 975,000 clicks on our Facebook site earlier this year when a picture of him in the floods went viral,” he said. “Why would someone do this?”
Mr Bradsworth said he was yet to get any leads.
The mascot became a celebrity during March after Mr Bradsworth posted an image of it lounging on a flooded football field while kids stood nearby.
Speculation over whether it was a real croc or a photoshop job was rife until the club revealed it was a life-size replica.
