The saltwater crocodile is a top predator in Australia, and more than just a very expensive nuisance for cattle ranchers. Too often, cattle owners will shoot and destroy crocs in their territory to keep their herds safe. Matt's solution is to raise these immense creatures by a sling under his helicopter to then relocate them away from people and cattle. But first he has to catch them.
