    Cahill's Crossing: Fascinating but frustrating work of managing crocs at notorious Kakadu waterway

    Is this a Safe way to cross a creek................
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-05-2...kakadu/9786650
    The ABC recently joined Mr Lindner in the field to learn more about one of Australia's most notorious waterways — the cars that get washed away, the apex predators which live there and the people who still wade in to cast a line.
    Although Gary Lindner has spent more than three decades keeping an eye on live crocodiles, some of his earliest interactions were with dead ones. Like him, his father was a wildlife ranger in Kakadu and he was known to bring home the carcasses of crocodiles encountered in the field.
    His fascination with the ancient, deadly reptiles has grown ever since, and Mr Lindner is today the crocodile manager at Kakadu National Park — a patch that includes one of the world's most notorious croc-inhabited waterways.

    Mr Lindner has worked in the park since 1986 and its resident crocodile population has varied greatly since his first day.
    Hunting was banned in 1971 and the population rapidly expanded until 1988. The river systems in the park have begun to reach capacity in the three decades since.
    Keeping track of croc numbers is a job that allows Mr Lindner to entertain his fascination with the creatures, but managing interactions with daring humans means it can also be a traumatic one.
    There have been five croc fatalities in the park and Mr Lindner has responded in four.
    Most recently in 2017 he was part of the team that joined Gunbalanya police to locate a man who went missing at Cahill's Crossing, only to be found with a 3.3-metre crocodile downstream

    We can be glad for the advances in automobile design today. These are pretty scary to watch.

    This is probably the worst I've seen:

    That picture has always intrigued me - assuming that girder is rigid and can't be lowered towards a platform how the hell do they get to stand up again?
