An Australian family in a suburb outside Darwin woke to the sound of their barking dog. The dog was complaining about the crocodile that wandered into the living room. Wildlife officials have relocated it to a crocodile farm.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

The dog was complaining about the five-and-a-half-foot croc that wandered into the living room, maybe stalking the dog. Wildlife officials have now relocated it to a crocodile farm. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
