tales from Crocodile Mick - 6th November 2003
Reporter: Jess Daly (online)
cant help but draw parallels between the Croc
Hunter himself, Steve Irwin and Crocodile Mick
starters they both live and breathe their darling
crocs and they both have a penchant for spinning yarns
about their reptile friends.
as we discovered recently when Crocodile Mick dropped
into the studio, this is where the similarities begin
and end and Mick isnt afraid tell everyone about
been told by the Steve Irwin mob that I'm actually
infringing on the copyright by using the word crocodile
find it pretty ironic that I come out of the bush
after living a quiet humble life with a swag on my
back, producing stories that I want to share with
the public...and out of the 132,000 websites, he picked
mine and tells me to get crocodile hunter off the
be fair, Mick is a little more Alby Mangles than his
khaki-wearing counterpart, and after 16 years as an
illegal crocodile poacher, hes still spearing
crocs, only now with a licence.
actually got my experience from the first 16 years
from poaching crocodiles in the northern part of Australia
and had all sorts of law enforcement after me for
quite some time.
the end they actually offered me an amnesty and that's
how come I'm actually doing it legally now, I've got
a licence and so forth for it."
