Croc Update

They're still after Reggie.

Crocodile Hunters Will Hunt Local Alligator | News | KTLA The CW | Where Los Angeles Lives: "A team of crocodile hunters from the late Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo will soon be on the way to Los Angeles to try to succeed where American gator wranglers failed, and remove Reggie the alligator from his murky Los Angeles park lagoon.

City councilwoman Janice Hahn said logistics are almost complete for a July 10 expedition, when a crew from the Australia Zoo in Queensland will attempt to remove the seven-foot-long creature from Machado Lake.

Quantas Airways has agreed to fly a crew and their gear to Los Angeles in early July, and city Parks and Recreation Department workers are keeping a log to try to establish Reggie's cruising habits in advance of the visit, Hahn told the Long Beach Press-Telegram."
