They sought to capture and isolate it so in order to prevent it from "interacting with humans."
The reptile will now "be taken to a croc farm in the Katherine region," she said.

That seems...counterintuitive.

Remember when you were a kid and your parents told you that your dog went to live out life on a farm in the country?

It's lived in peace for 60 years....obviously it's learned to leave humans well enough alone.  Judging from the fact that it's now strapped to a trailer bed, I would say it had more to fear from us than we did of it.

"They sought to capture and isolate it so in order to prevent it from "interacting with humans."

It's already in the Northern Territory, a region almost twice the size of Texas with a whopping 240k people who are mostly congregated in two towns.

Isn't that isolated enough already?

Yep, also it's been seen twice in 8 years, sounds like it was doing well on its own avoiding humans.

"Of course we're going to kill it.  But let's get our picture on the telly and tell everyone we did it for its 'own good'...and it's going to live on a farm."

It avoided "interaction with humans" --except for you guys who chased it around for eight years.

the most dangerous animal that we are aware of in the entire universe is the human being. We are the apex predator.

So how far back are they going to stand to force the perspective that its a REALLY BIG croc?

Thats like a 12-16 foot trailer.

I read that as we are tired of burying/ patching up drunk morons who won't leave it alone, so we are moving it far enough away to prevent that.

I doubt that is intentional.  You can get a length reference from the trailer.  They are probably standing so far back as to not get the croc all riled up again.

The croc who is tied in at least six places to a large plank and who has his jaws duct-taped shut? Do you think he isn't already riled up just from being restrained?
It would be a genuine shame if he were to escape and then starve to death because he can't open his mouth. :-(

Well, the article says that he's 15.45 feet long so that should give you a pretty good idea of how long he is... 🙄
