More Croc News..
Yesterday I got the request to lend one of my croc photos to "Now Public", which was collecting news about mr Brooker who was probably killed by a croc. This is what they wrote:
"Missing 62 -year old expat Scot, Arthur Brooker, may have been devoured by a crocodile investigators confirm after human remains were identified inside one of the resident crocodiles in Queensland, Australia.
Officials in Queensland who have been investigating the fate of Arthur Brooker, 62, said they had found the remains inside one of three big crocodiles captured in the Endeavour River.
Mr Brooker, who is originally from Scotland and served with Australian forces in the Vietnam war, vanished from the banks of the crocodile-infested river in Cape York last week while checking pots used to catch crabs.
The three crocodiles, longtime residents of the Endeavour, were then caught and taken by truck to a veterinary surgery in Cairns. One has been ruled out as a possible culprit but the other two will be subjected to further tests, a police spokesman said following the initial discovery of human tissue."
