Outrage: Albino Crocodile Killed After Eating Hapless Fisherman: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An albino-headed crocodile that killed a man fishing on a Territory river has been described by an expert as a one-in-100-million rarity.

The distinctive 4.5m saltwater crocodile - known locally as Michael Jackson - was hunted down and killed a few hours after the 57-year-old fisherman was taken when he ventured into the water to retrieve a snagged fishing line on Monday evening."

The crocodile`s head was as white as a ghost while the rest of its body was normal in coloring, hence he was known as " Michael Jackson."

Australian police and rangers shot and killed the crocodile, and recovered the fisherman`s body.

It`s an outrage that a one-in-a-100-million rarity was killed simply because he ate a hapless fisherman. I don`t care if the magnificent and beautiful creature had gobbled up a troop of Girl Scouts or a bevy of nuns, he should not have been killed.

I hope there`s a chapter of PETA down under, those police and rangers deserve to be harassed for the rest of their miserable lives.
