Crocodile shocks anglers, snatches catch off the line

A hungry crocodile made sure a pair of anglers did not get too far with their catch.

In a video shared on social media over the weekend, a woman fishing in Cahills Crossing in the Kakadu National Park in Australia’s Northern Territory is seen dragging a sizable fish, reportedly a barramundi, along the shore after hooking it on her line, while her partner runs up with a net to grab the catch.

However, while the pair is attempting to grab the barramundi, their plans are interrupted by a saltwater crocodile that rushes out of the river and snatches the fish off the line.

In the scary video, the two are seen running away from the croc as it eats the fishy meal.

The Crossing is a popular fishing spot with locals and tourists – despite the dangerous crocodile-infested waters.
