The video attracted hundreds of comments on Facebook, with many criticising the person filming for not alerting the dog.
One named April Cooper wrote: ‘As if you would sit there and not throw a rock or something to save that dog.’
Another commenter named Melinda Henderson said the video was hard to watch but hoped it raised awareness of the danger of crocodiles.
She wrote: ‘It makes me cringe to watch and wouldn’t have been nice for the kids to see.
‘However we can only hope by it being shared around that it creates awareness about these creatures and not to casually hang around the waters edge in these parts.’
