A large crocodile has been caught in the Endeavour River near Cooktown, scene of a probable crocodile attack on Arthur Booker as posted previously in this Blog. The large crocodile has been moved to Cairns where it will be x-rayed to see if it was responsible for the disappearance of Booker.
Following the x-ray the crocodile will be taken to a crocodile farm where it will be used for breeding purposes.
According to authorities the crocodile was seen near the alleged attack site and was behaving in an aggressive manner towards boats.
Other crocodiles that may be responsible for the disappearance of Arthur Booker are still being trapped, though authorities have said that it may take some time to capture the crocodile responsible for his disappearance.
