A dog swimming in the ocean was filmed running frantically from a crocodile in Australia last weekend, narrowly escaping from a pursuing supreme predator.
Footage of the recent meeting was uploaded to Facebook by a woman traveling in the country and documenting the trip through a personal account called Han and Her Four Men. The video has attracted more than 75,000 views since its publication online.
The incident occurred on Sunday morning near the campaign area of Umajiko, which is a coastal area in the North Peninsula area of Queensland.
“I almost witnessed a cape Carnage this morning. The puppy was almost taken from step. My heart was pounding as we all tried to call the puppy back. ”
The video shows the dog swimming in the ocean as a large crocodile approaches from behind. The puppy is seen stopping and turning – appearing to realize the danger before racing back to the store – as people shout and clap to get his attention.
“Come on, get away from him,” a man was heard shouting at the dog. A man looking helplessly from the shore was seen with his hands on his head.
The woman who shot the footage – identified as Hannah – was heard sighing with relief when the dog successfully reached safety, commenting that it was “close”.
In comments, she said the dog was known to live in the campsite and that its owner, unidentified by name, was among the attempts to return it.
“It was the puppy in the caravan park, but no one was hunting with it, everyone was trying to get it back, including the owner!” she wrote in response to a user who noted that the owner’s dogs had previously been known to enter ocean water as if “fishing”.
“A little too close for my taste and the not-quite-quiet Sunday morning we had planned!” Hannah writes. The video has now garnered hundreds of comments and shares from shocked social media users, many of whom have highlighted the dog’s luck.
“There were about 15 people in the bank watching it unfold, and everyone had their hearts in their mouths,” Hannah said. Daily Mail Australia.
“We looked at each other afterwards in complete … shock at what we had just witnessed. You are watching David Attenborough on the screen and get nervous, but to see it in real life is an absolute cardiac arrest. Everyone was just grateful that it was a happy ending! “
Last month, Australian rescuer Bob McFaul called for the removal of a 3-meter crocodile spotted in Palm Cove, a coastal suburb of Cairns Queensland.
McFaul raised concerns that children were playing near the area where step has been spotted and the predator has already eaten at least one pet dog, he said, telling a local doctor Staffordshire the bull terrier was attacked on September 23.
“There was a scream, a bark, and then it disappeared step is as fat as a pig, has a full belly, which is obviously the dog, “he said Daily Mail reported (via Courier mail).
In a statement given to News.com.insaid a spokesman for the Queensland Ministry of Environment and Science crocodiles in the area are aimed at elimination.
“The person reporting the incident [said] the crocodile may have taken a dog that was walking on the beach at a time after the dog had disappeared from view, “read in response.” The person making the report did not see the crocodile take the dog. “
