'VB made me do it': Queensland woman snapped swimming with crocodile

They say never smile at a crocodile, but should you go for a dip with one instead?

A series of images have emerged on social media of a woman literally ‘diving with death’ when she decided to go for a swim with a croc.

The woman with the ‘nerves of steel’, Shae Pasetti, can be seen in a photo happily posing next to a crocodile.

Shae explained that her nerves could have been the result of liquid courage, “The VB made me do it,” she wrote as part of her post.

Shae can be seen holding a can of VB while posing for the pics.

There has been some speculation online that the crocodile might have been sick or injured.

Some commenters have suggested the crocodile appeared to have suffered an injury to its jaw.

The reptile is believed to be a freshwater crocodile and not a saltwater.

It’s not known exactly where the images were taken however it’s believed to have occurred somewhere in far north Queensland.

Earlier in the month there were new calls for a croc cull in North Queensland after a photograph surfaced of a beloved family pet dog being eaten by a Saltwater Crocodile.

Purebred one-year-old kelpie pup Rusty was playing near a creek when he was grabbed and devoured by a crocodile at the Horton family home at Belvedere, north of Innisfail.

Katter's Australian Party MP Shane Knuth said he and his colleagues would draft legislation to allow for the controlled culling or relocation of crocodiles in populated areas across the state.

"It's time to bring back the balance and prioritise human safety over crocs," he said in a statement.

Mr Knuth said the recent rainfall and flooding from Cyclone Debbie could result in crocodiles becoming more active.

The teenager is recovering in hospital after he launched himself into crocodile infested waters.

Also in far north Queensland in March a smitten teen jumped into crocodile infested waters to win the affection of a British backpacker.

Lee de Paauw, 18, nearly lost his arm fighting off a saltwater crocodile after jumping into the the Johnstone River at Innisfail in the early hours of the morning.

Backpacker Sophie Paterson denied claims she dared the 18-year-old to jump into the Johnstone river after her “first experience drinking goon” during a night out with Mr de Paauw and friends.

The 18-year-old is lucky to be alive following the attack by the monster croc.
