Unwelcome guest: Crocodile wanders into family living room

WILDLIFE RANGERS HAVE helped an Australian family deal with an uninvited guest: a 5-foot-6-inch (1.7-metre) crocodile that wandered into their living room.

The juvenile saltwater crocodile wandered into a home in Bees Creek, a suburb of the northern Australian city of Darwin.

Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported that the family found it in a partially enclosed living area on Saturday morning after their dog’s barking woke them.

Resident Jo Dodd describes the encounter as “a very surreal moment” and “the most freakiest thing.” She suspects the croc might been stalking the dog.

Crocodile management official Dani Best told ABC the croc might have been forced out of a nearby creek by a larger croc. The intruder has been relocated to a crocodile farm.
