Australia rejects Crocodile Safari - Hunting plan

The Federal Government of Australia has turned down the proposal from Northern Territory Government to allow crocodile hunting. Government of Northern Territory mooted the proposal as an antidote to increasing attacks on human beings by crocs.600 problem animals were identified. The provincial government had argued that hunting would help keep down crocodile numbers and consequently lessen the chances of people being killed or injured. Financial return was touted as another incentive. Environment groups were opposed to the plan right from the beginning.
