World News – UA – Massive crocodile caught on camera chasing dog swimming in ocean as owner watches helplessly from shore


A dog swimming in the ocean was filmed frantically fleeing a crocodile in Australia last weekend, narrowly escaping the apex predator chasing it

Images of the close encounter were uploaded to Facebook by a woman traveling the country documenting the trip via a personal account called Han and Her Four Men The clip has attracted more than 75,000 views since it was posted online

The incident happened on Sunday morning near a countryside area of ​​Umagico, which is a coastal area in the North Queensland Peninsula region

« I almost witnessed Cape Carnage this morning Puppy almost got caught by a hook Heart was pounding as we all tried to call the puppy back, » a caption reads

The video shows the dog swimming in the ocean as a large crocodile approaches from behind The puppy is seen stopping and turning around – seeming to realize the danger before returning to the store – as the people shout and clap to get his attention

« Come on, get away from him » a person could be heard screaming at the dog A man watching helplessly from the shore was seen with his hands on his head

The woman who filmed the footage – identified as Hannah – was heard heaving a sigh of relief as the dog managed to get to safety, commenting that he had been « close »

She said in the comments that it was a dog known to live in the campground and that its owner, not identified by name, was among those trying to retrieve it


« She was the trailer park puppy, but no one was fishing with her, everyone was trying to get her back, including the owner! » she wrote in response to a user who noted that the owner’s dogs were already known to enter ocean water as if they were « fishing »

« A little too close for my taste and not quite the relaxing Sunday morning that we had expected! » Hannah wrote The video has now amassed hundreds of comments and shares from shocked users of the social network, many highlighting the dog’s luck

« There were around 15 people on the bank watching it unfold and each person had their hearts in their mouths, » Hannah told Daily Mail Australia

« We then looked at each other in shock at what we had just witnessed You watch David Attenborough on screen and you get nervous but seeing him in real life is absolutely breathtaking Everyone was just thankful that this be a happy ending! « 

Australian rescuer Bob McPhail last month called for the removal of a 3-meter-long crocodile spotted in Palm Cove, a coastal suburb of Cairns, Queensland

McPhail expressed concern that children were playing near the area where the crocodile had been seen and that the predator had already eaten at least one companion dog, he claimed, saying that a local medic’s Staffordshire bull terrier was attacked on September 23

« There was a howl, a bark, then disappeared The crocodile is as big as a pig, he has a full belly which is obviously the dog, » he said, reported the Daily Mail (via Courier Mail)

In a statement given to Newscomau, a spokesperson for the Queensland Department of Environment and Science said the area’s fangs were being targeted for disposal

« The person who reported the incident [said] that the crocodile may have taken a dog that he was walking along the beach when the dog was out of sight, » a response said. « The person making the report did not see the crocodile take the dog »
