Croc Update (Flat Dogs Edition)

Guard crocs on duty - Local News - Cairns, QLD, Australia: "GUARD crocodiles may be the answer for a reptile farm almost at snapping point after the repeated theft of valuable skins and skulls. 

The move to put the 'flat dogs' on patrol at night comes after a spate of crocodile skin and artefact burglaries from the Daintree to Gordonvale.

Cairns Crocodile Farm is considering the extreme measure after three recent break-ins where 1m long stuffed skull from a 6m croc, two expensive skins, about a dozen skulls, a stuffed 1.5m croc, leather handbags and computer equipment has been stolen in the past month."
