600kg crocodile caught in Australia after decade-long hunt

A 4.7-metre, 600kg saltwater crocodile has been caught in Katherine, in the Northern Territory, after a decade-long hunt..

After almost a decade on the loose, authorities have finally captured a "monster" Northern Territory crocodile.

NT Parks and Wildlife rangers caught the 4.7-metre saltwater crocodile on Monday at a private property at Taylor's Park, 60km downstream from Katherine.

With an estimated weight of up to 600 kilograms and thought to be more than 60 years old, it is the biggest crocodile ever removed from the Katherine River by the Territory's Wildlife Operation Unit, acting director Tracey Duldig said.
