Simon, I so agree with what you have written. I absolutely could not believe all the people at the WASA pond around 5 at night throwing chicken out to the crocs.... or taking pictures trying to pet them etc. etc., one only needs to do a search here on this board for pictures of people doing these things on their vacations and bragging about it!!! kind of reminds me of some stupid, stupid tourists dipping their kids hands in honey to lure bears closer for good pictures in the Rockies! And unfortunately the loser is usually the animals... they are either put down or relocated to other areas... Hopefully your friends from Texas Tech will be able to make some recommendations on preservation of the crocs and hopefully someone will do something to prevent people from baiting the crocs for photo ops!!! Good Luck!
