THEY BROUGHT A CROC

BACK HOME ALIVE

A 5ft. long live crocodile was brought back to Melbourne yesterday from the big - game hunting lodge at the Gulf of Carpentaria.

It was one of l8 "bagged" by the first party of crocodile

"shooters to go to the  

lodge.

Three members brought it back as a gift for Mr. Rene Henri, president of the Australian Croco- dile Shooters' and Big Game Club.

Bill Speaker, David Nicholls, Rene Henri, and Claude Johnson -and the crocodile-- at yesterday's "hand- ing-over ceremony" at Essendon airport.

Mr. Henri, who enjoys

hunting crocodiles, but  

has no facilities for   keeping them in his

home, promptly presen-  

ted his gift to the Zoo, which was glad to get it.

The crocodile is six years old and weighs 641b. It was caught last Saturday.

The other 17 crocodiles caught by the expedition were killed and skinned.
