Its the latest big kill for the beast dubbed the Milikapiti monster that has been terrorising humans and animals on Melville Island for years. The crocs latest big feast came late last year. The 4m saltie devoured the buffalos en tire body, leaving only the head behind. You wouldnt want to go near him. Hes about 13 or 14 foot. A big croc, Milikapiti local Malcolm Wilson said. He said it was the same croc that has been stalking the beach near the Milikapiti community for years. About four years ago the crocodile snatched a womans Labrador as she was walking it along the beach. The big croc just took him, Mr Wilson said. She saw the croc taking him out in the deep sea there. We told her not to take her dogs out there but she wouldnt listen. It was sad to see an animal like that get taken. Lucky it wasnt her or someone else. The crocodile is also known for his unusual method of transporting his prey. He carries the turtles on his back, Mr Wilson said. He grabs the turtles and probably drowns them and takes it somewhere to have a feed. Despite their best efforts, locals have been unable to kill the Milikapiti monster. Some of the locals tried to get him, but hes too smart for them, Mr Wilson said. Probably one day theyll get him. MATT CUNNINGHAM ABC job cuts impact on NT unclear THE ABC will axe between 150 and 200 jobs to help fund $50 million in new content. One-fifth of its management will be cut to invest $15 million a year in regional jobs and extra digital and video out put. The national broadcaster says it will create 80 jobs in rural and regional Australia because of the changes. But it remains unknown how many will go or be created in the Northern Territory.
