Calls for croc trophy hunting in Northern Territory

Australia's government is again under pressure to approve some hunting of salt water crocodiles in the Northern Territory after two indigenous children were killed by crocodiles in recent weeks.

Some crocodile experts say ending a 40 year old hunting ban may take out some of the large and dangerous crocs.

The government says it's considering a partial lifting of the hunting ban, but opponents say this won't stop attacks
