Pippa the terrier chased the crocodile into the water for 10 years in Australia. Finally, the Crocodile patience was tested to far and ate the dog by dragging it into the water.
Speaking to ABC's breakfast show on Thursday Kai Hansen said he was "really sad," about losing his pet and that he hadn't yet watched the video of Pippa's final encounter with the croc. "She's not doing something wrong," he said, "she's just doing what crocs do… In the early days she actually had a go at me a couple of times. These days I just throw food out from up the top and no-one is allowed to walk down there." He told the network he would get a new dog, but "definitely" would not let it chase crocodiles Hansen, criticized by some on social media for allowing, even encouraging the dog's behavior, said it was simply Pippa's nature to chase larger animals. "She got away with it for 10 years," he said.
