July 24 (UPI) -- A group of anglers using a drone to spot fish in Australia captured video of a massive crocodile dragging an entire cow through a river.

The video, posted to YouTube by user Trip In A Van, shows a crocodile -- estimated to be between 16 and 20 feet long -- swimming in a river in Western Australia's Kimberly region Friday while carrying a fully-grown cow in its jaws.


"On a day out fishing for Barramundi in The Kimberley, Western Australia we spotted this massive crocodile drag a cow down the river bank,"the filmer wrote. "We followed him with the drone as it dragged the cow down river. It eventually got fed up with the drone buzzing over him and tried to pull the cow underwater."

The angler described the scene as the "pure awesomeness of nature."
