Remains found inside crocodile after attack

Have your say

Australian police have found human remains inside a large crocodile that is believed to have snatched a man from a boat in a popular national park.

Police found the remains inside a 15ft 5ins saltwater crocodile that park rangers shot while searching for a 62-year-old man who was attacked in Kakadu National Park, a police spokesman said. The crocodile was one of two that were shot about a mile from the scene of the attack.

Police said the man, whose name has not been released, was on a boat with his wife, son and daughter-in-law when the crocodile snatched him.

It was the second deadly crocodile attack this year in Kakadu. In January, a 12-year-old boy was killed and his friend mauled as they swam in a water hole.
