To be honest, in China it would probably goes something along the lines of poachers broke into a compound and unwittingly let go of the crocs and now they're asking residence to please be civilized and not to stab the shit out of them and sell their hides and meat on the black market and just let wildlife services round them up. Lets put it this way, this is the country where when a bunch of fishers sees a whale shark they think it might be a good idea to bring it in.
In Canada, well right now it's just not possible they'd survive. I know a nearby restaurant that makes 'Bayou' food so maybe they'll take the frozen carcases.
Denmark is one of the tamest countries in the world. Our biggest predator is the fox. And no, not some gigantic tusked fox of doom, just a plain old fox.
Once a single elk swam to Denmark from Sweden, and it was big news. An elk is huge! And wild! And not a cow! We've recently had two wolves wander up from Germany. The first died, because it got stared at so consistently that it couldn't hunt. The second only just got here. It's in the papers all the time, even though nothing has happened
If there were crocs out and about,every single newspaper would explode in mega headlines , and the TV news would ignore most other things, all the while making crazy speculations. You don't know overreacting, until you've seen Danish news react to wildlife.
Nonsense. He's still Australian. He's just Australian dirt. Which, actually is even more Australian than Australians, when you think about it. I mean, Australians just walk around on top of the Australian continent, but Steve goes further. He is Australian continent. Or at least a few shovels full of it.
The public would freak out and keeping crocodilians privately would be banned. They're doing it with pythons already. Won't be long before all you can have is a cat, a dog, a neglected goldfish, and a hamster.
The cats should definitely be at least tightly restricted, due to the damage they can cause to native birds. Pythons, of course, should be regulated too due to their potential to be dangerous, but there is no reason for an outright ban on them except for in South Florida.
The problem with Dr Evil's model is that sharks do not have legs. That severely reduces their utility. Also the bigger ones tend to spontaneously die in captivity, they're generally more trouble than they're worth.
"I Keep six honest serving-men: (They taught me all I knew) Their names are What and Where and When And How and Why and Who. I send them over land and sea, I send them east and west; But after they have worked for me, I give them all a rest.
I let them rest from nine till five. For I am busy then, As well as breakfast, lunch, and tea, For they are hungry men: But different folk have different views: I know a person small-- She keeps ten million serving-men, Who get no rest at all! She sends 'em abroad on her own affairs, From the second she opens her eyes-- One million Hows, two million Wheres, And seven million Whys!"
We actually had something somewhat similar happen near where I used to live. A man realized all the animals in his personal zoo, and then shot himself. Fortunately, there weren't 15,000 animals on the loose. I think that's more than rural Ohio can deal with at once.
