'Monster' aggressive four-metre crocodile terrifies dog-walkers and their pets at a popular beach - but it's VERY hard to spot

  • 'She was coming in on for the dogs on the shore, extremely aggressive,' he said
An aggressive four-metre crocodile has terrorised a dog-walker and his pets at a popular creek.
Gabe Chipkin was walking his dogs at 6.30pm on Tuesday along Rapid Creek in Darwin, Northern Territory, when he spotted the 'monster' crocodile a few metres from the shore.
The Darwin local began filming the crocodile bobbing in the water, but the situation took a turn when the reptile made a beeline for his pets. 
Gabe Chipkin was walking his dogs at 6.30pm on Tuesday along Rapid Creek in Darwin, Northern Territory, when he spotted the 'monster' crocodile a few metres from the shore
'She was coming in head on for the dogs on the shore, extremely aggressive,' he told the NT News.
Mr Chipkin described his terror as the hungry crocodile repeatedly came in close, as though it was going to strike, before backing away again.
'It was just bloody wild, I've seen crocs down there but never this big.'
He said he'd never seen such an aggressive crocodile.
It comes just weeks after a father and son survived a harrowing night on a sandbank in crocodile-infested waters south of Darwin after one of the reptiles destroyed their boat.

The group of three, including a 14-year-old boy, narrowly avoided death as the massive crocodile leaped out of the water and lunged at them.
They took refuge on a sandbar where they could keep an eye out for the crocodile while trying to sleep through the night.
They made it through the night unscathed and managed to take the tattered boat two kilometres down the river where they were rescued by police.
