PERTH, Australia: A crocodile has bitten off a woman’s arm in a “death roll” at a creek in a small northwestern Australian town, sparking a hunt to trap and kill the animal on Thursday. The woman, aged in her 60s, was at Three Mile Creek in Wyndham, about 3,200 kilometers north of Perth, on Wednesday afternoon when the croc lunged, Western Australia’s Country Health Service told AFP. She was flown to the Royal Darwin Hospital in neighboring Northern Territory in a stable condition, and underwent surgery late Wednesday, St John Ambulance NT operations manager Craig Garraway said. During a death roll a crocodile spins and twists to rip off parts of its prey.
