Bindi shared the video, which showed her getting involved in capturing 'Big Dunc' by getting on his back, on Instagram.

She wrote: "CRIKEY! Check out Big Dunc on the #CrocTrip2016 🐊🌿 Our highly experienced @AustraliaZoo Croc Team uses the very same capture techniques that Dad developed so many years ago.

"Our team leader, Toby Millyard was trained by Dad himself and continues to help us carry on in his footsteps. We truly have the most elite team when it comes to catching crocs and we all share the passion of protecting crocodiles as well as educating others.

"These techniques have allowed us to safely capture crocs such as Big Dunc. Big Dunc is a whopping 15 feet 1.5 inches of sheer power. He is currently the largest crocodile we are tracking in the Wenlock River.

"This is the third time Big Dunc has decided to stop by for a free meal and to say g'day to our team. Somehow he manages to seem bigger and bigger with each visit. Big Dunc is just one of the 146 (and counting) crocodiles we are currently tracking throughout the Wenlock River."

A number of people posted comments underneath the video suggesting the practice was "cruel".

However, according to the Independent, one Instagrammer responded: "These creatures need to be rescued from areas like this before poachers kill them and turn them into boots, bags and belts. This, is the only safe way to move them. This is not cruel at all, they are helping them before they become extinct."

When one user suggested there must be a nicer way to move them, someone replied: "I'm watching Steve on Animal Planet today. And he said too many crocs have died from being drugged and they are trying to take these crocs to safer places."

Another user wrote: "Omg shut the hell up! Steve Irwin was the biggest animal lover and ambassador out there for their protection. I'd love the see half of these keyboard warriors attempt to restrain a croc or alligator, lmao."

One person added: "People being negative. They clearly know what they're doing and probably do this every day."

The 4 September marked the 10th anniversary of the 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin's death.

He was killed by a stingray barb while filming an underwater wildlife documentary in New South Wales.

Bindi marked the anniversary with a moving tribute to her dad on Instagram.

She shared a picture of him holding her as a baby and wrote: "You'll be my hero for my entire existence. I love you more than words can describe."
