A 14-meter giant monster in Australia has been a nightmare for pets for weeks!

The 14-meter giant monster, which was seen in Australia and caused trouble for domestic animals, was finally taken under control after weeks of effort.

In Australia, a 14-meter-tall giant crocodile, which is a big problem for pets, was captured in its hiding place after a long effort.

14 METERS LONG

Property owners in Cordelia reported the approximately 14-metre-long crocodile to wildlife authorities, the Queensland Department of Environment, Science and Innovation said in a March 26 news release.

”A DANGEROUS ANIMAL”

Authorities investigated and saw the alligator “wandering around private property and following domestic and livestock animals,” the department said. They described it as a “dangerous animal.”

Tony Frisby, the department’s senior wildlife officer, said in the statement that “we first tried a floating trap in the river, but due to the amount of rainfall and rising river levels” the trap did not work.

”WE HAD TO SET A TRAP”

Instead, “we had to set up a gated trap, which is a trap that rests on the river bank,” Frisby said. After evading capture for weeks, the 14-foot alligator was finally trapped, authorities said. Wildlife officials returned to the property and placed the reptile in a container. Photos show the net-wrapped crocodile being pulled into the cage.

A second larger crocodile, approximately 3 meters long, was also captured in the nearby Townsville area. Australia’s saltwater crocodiles are “the largest reptile on the planet,” according to Oceana, with males reaching lengths of 23 feet and weighing over 2,200 pounds.

IT WILL BE KEPT IN THE ZOO

Both crocodiles will be kept in captivity in crocodile farms or zoos, the ministry said. Cordelia, Queensland, is located approximately 2,400 miles northwest of Sydney and on the country’s northeastern coast.
