Croc Problem To Be Solved With A Role of Tape and Some Magnets

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has come up with a interesting plan to keep Crocodiles out of the waters behind residential communities. They'll be taping magnets to their head.

By attaching magnets to each side of their heads some research suggests it affects crocodile's natural sense of navigation.

Surprisingly, this isn't a very well thought out plan.

"Hey, we might as well give this a try," is what spokesman Lindsey Hord had to say to Reuters.
