Dog that tormented and chased crocodile eaten by reptile

A small terrier that tormented and chased a large crocodile for the last ten years has been eaten by the reptile on the banks of Australia’s river Adelaide. The tiny pooch, named Pippa, was famous for chasing the saltwater crocodile named Casey away while she relaxed on the side of the river.

According to Yahoo News, Pippa attracted tourists who were amazed how the tiny pooch, nicknamed “Dumb Blonde,” would taunt the nasty reptile on the remote Goat Island Lodge, only accessible by an hour’s boat ride. Pippa’s owner, Kai Hansen was there when Casey finally had enough and caught Pippa in her huge jaws and dragged her into the river while horrified onlookers screamed and cried.

In the video recently posted to Facebook, Pippa can be seen running towards the crocodile, but in an instant Casey grabbed the dog and dragged her into the water. (Be warned the video is very disturbing and is not suitable for all viewing audiences)

“It was something that had a high probability of happening sometime,” stated Hansen although he said he was “really sad.”

Hansen does not blame Casey, who measures in at 11 feet, explaining that’s just what crocodiles do. Years ago, Hansen said he had almost been attacked by the reptile, but nowadays he just throws food out (meat) from the top, and no one is allowed below near the river.

Hansen has posted videos online for many years showing the 15-pound Pippa chasing the croc and admits he has encouraged the dog to chase Casey; comparing the dog’s action similar to chasing cars.

Rest in peace Pippa.

“Personally I think Hansen is a creep and should never be allowed to own any pets. What kind of a dog owner allows his pet to be in danger just for a tourist attraction and a few bucks?,” one angry woman posted on Facebook.

    What a disgusting owner to even allow his small dog for the past 10 years taunt this crocodile is beyond cruel not only to the croc, but now the dog is gone a horrible way too. Man should never be allowed to own another dog,cat or anything that he would have and make it taunt this crocodile again. What that tiny dog must have felt as he was grabbed and went under to die a painful way.

    Poor Pippa should have been taken from Hanson years ago! What he was doing to her was abuse, pure and simple, and it was going to end as it did sooner or later. He caused her death as surely as if he’d thrown her right to Casey! That bastard should NEVER be allowed to have another pet.

      Agreed…… Hansen knew very well how this situation could end……. He didn’t love his pet, he just wanted to “use her for entertainment”…… All for money & no regard for his dog’s safety, disgusting POS…….

      Precious little treasure, you didn’t deserve to die for entertainment, RIP and look for MacKitty in Heaven….. you will be welcome to join his group of snuggle buddies…….. so sorry that you were failed so horribly by humans……..

      That POS who failed to protect you will burn in Hell forever for his cruelty……. let’s hope he gets there ASAP after suffering a terrible death in pain, alone, afraid and unloved…….

    I completely agree with the woman who angrily posted the Facebook message. This owner is a greedy subhuman who allowed Pippa to be put in danger for his own human greed. Now little Pippa is dead and it is all his fault. He didn’t care one bit about the safety of his dog, too busy counting the tourist money he mad. I hope Casey gets Hanson next. Idiot.

    This Hanson asshole could have cared less about Pippa’s safety – he encouraged her to taunt the crocodile and knew damn well she could be killed but his only concern was the money he made from idiot tourists who thought this was entertainment. Now Pippa is dead – thanks to him – he did nothing to ensure her safety. I hope Casey the Croc gets Hansen next. Idiot.
