Wildlife rangers trapped a 4.4-meter-long (14 feet) saltwater crocodile at a tourist destination in Northern Australia, Monday, August 31.
The croc was caught in the Flora River at a remote nature park southwest of the town of Katherine.
Crocodile numbers have been increasing across Australia’s northern tropical areas since federal law made them a protected species in the early 1970s.
The captured croc had been taken to a crocodile farm to become part of a breeding program. (AP)
