This is a story of self-control and fast thinking by a brave, cool-headed woman with a walking stick against a fierce predator.
Here is her story in her own words:
“While out walking along the edge of a creek just outside of our house in Darwin, with my soon to be ex-husband discussing our property settlement, Kids and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 5 metre. Crocodile which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging at us very fast with its large jaws wide open.
The Croc must have been protecting her young and her home because she was extremely aggressive.
If I had not had my little $5 Dollar Shop walking stick with me, I would not be here today!
Just one Hard Wack to my estranged husband’s knee cap was all it took….The’ Croc got him easily and I was able to
escape by just walking away at a brisk pace.
The amount I saved in lawyer’s fees was really incredible.”
