When the phone rings at 6am it's never good news and I know I'm getting out of bed.
A croc had wandered into someone's yard through a hole in the fence and was stuck.
Once the officer who called told me the location and the size of the croc in question I knew immediately it was going to be Charlie! Oh Charlie.... what are we gonna do with you..??
Charlie is a repeat offender (I'm not sure it's really fair to call him that).
He's not problematic, or even really a nuisance croc, but he does like to wander.
Charlie resides in a landlocked body of water, and surprisingly, for a croc who weighs as much as he does and only has 3 legs, he likes to go for walks right through the neighborhood out to the main lagoon!
He usually does this late at night or early morning when there's no one around and by all accounts this is a regular occurrence. Unfortunately for Charlie, he's pretty old and apparently pretty forgetful and once or twice a year he gets himself lost!
Not to worry. We're always on call to lend an old fella a helping hand!
