Terri Irwin should leave croc management to locals

Letter to editor

Mrs Terri Irwin from Australia Zoo near Weipa has placed the lives of salt water crocodiles above that of people.

It’s a fact the government purchased a Cape York property for $6 million to hand over to Australia Zoo some years ago.

But how can Mrs Irwin place animal lives over humans?

I have been told by tourists who visited Australia Zoo near Weipa, Mrs Irwin’s wildlife officers have tagged more than 130 saltwater crocodiles in a short stretch of the Wenlock River.

The river ecology simply cannot tolerate such a high incidence of estuarine crocodiles. Soon these crocs will start preying on each other because the fish population and any other animals on the croc menu will have been eaten out.

Indigenous people have told me there are far too many saltwater crocs and fish numbers have been seriously depleted in Peninsula waterways because of the explosion in numbers.

Mrs Irwin said on radio that more croc warning signs needed to be erected on beaches and at airports and schools should educate children that they can no longer go near any water anywhere in the north.

How does Mrs Irwin expect tourist operators to promote beaches and rivers for swimming and fishing when it is too dangerous to go near the water? What about the life savers?

Do indigenous people get a say over croc management? After all most of the crocs live in rivers and creeks on Aboriginal controlled land and coastal waterways north of Townsville.

Why does Mrs Irwin who does not live in North Queensland feel she should have more say than indigenous and local residents over croc management?

The ALP and LNP refuse to fast track KAP Safe Waterways legislation that will help protect tourists and northern inhabitants from attacks.

Twenty years ago we did not have this problem in the north.

How many more people and animals need to be devoured by the large, rapacious crocodile population before the party duopoly wakes up?

  1. Terri Irwin Thinks she is Queensland’s authority on Crocs. What she said proves she hasn’t a clue.

  2. Painful Paulie the Patriot

    I left amsg re contact recently, did it disappear or you’re not bothering to respond…?

  3. Terri Irwin should mind her own business and leave it to the Indiginous people, and those who live in croc-infested lands, to decide what has to be done.She is another bleeding heart who lives in fantasyland.

  4. Agreed . Mrs Irwin…leave the Crocs to the EXPERTS! Please do not INTERFERE because HUMANS ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN A DINNER!!

  5. terri irwin is just another khazarian globalist, that’s why. she is not a true animal nor nature lover. she and her daughter are taking advantage of those poor locked-up animals to suck money out of ignorant people. NO HEALTHY ANIMAL should ever be in confinement. That’s why I like the idea of a temporary clinic/shelter to care for sick & injured animals, but never of a zoo. they are not really ” educating ” any one as they claim to do by running a mere permanent captivity facility. As for those wild crocs, if they are a threat to us then they do need to be taken care of accordingly. I wish people quit making her and her posse rich already, because they are no good at all. I wish they stop acting like they are the nature authorities around, it really gets on my nerves being as someone with a legit science degree myself. they only care about making profits. they don’t care about life of others, humans and animals alike. If anybody’s got a level head it’s easy to observe what they are REALLY doing.

  6. A list of names of those who are the most responsible for the infestation of crocodiles and other dangerous creatures should be made and handed to the next of kin of victims who have been killed by these creatures so that it will be known who exactly to punish.

  7. Terri Irwin can go back to leftard Collapsifornia where she came from. She clearly does not belong in Australia and I know the majority of Australians are sick to death of her.
