Saltwater crocodile hunting in Australia
      10/10/04 09:15 PM

Would you trophy hunt an Australian Saltwater Crocodile for $10,000 ?

A poll. Would you if given a legal chance hunt a trophy saltwater crocodile in the Top End of Australia for $10,000?

Currently there is a plan put forward by the Northern Territory government for approval by the Commonwealth of Australia government to allow 25 safari hunts with CITES permits per year.

Numbers very much well in excess of 25 saltwater crocodiles are already taken out of the wild by trapping or shooting for so-called "problem" crocodiles. These permits already have CITES permits allowing the crocodile products to be exported. The difference in this proposal is allowing safari hunting.

Saltwater crocodiles are not endangered in Australia and were harvested before a ban on shooting was enacted due to severe decrease in numbers in the 1970's. Since then the numbers have re-bounded. I do not believe saltwater crocodiles can be legally hunted anywhere else in their range which extends from India to the Phillipines to New Guinea to Northern Australia.

The proceeds from safari hunting would benefit tourism, land owners including indiginous populations.

Comments welcomed.

Yes, I am interested but the price is too high. Please comment on what it would be worth in your opinion.
