loose somewhere out there.

Give me a break. As some one who grew up in the territory 8 people missing since 2004 is not a great deal. The area of the territory covers 1,349,129
km² or 520,902 sq mi for our US friends of some pretty rough terrain that is sparsely populated. Alot of those who have gone missing are tourists who
have not taken the neccessary precautions or have ignored advice from experienced locals.
More people go missing in a small city like Adelaide than dissapear in 3 yrs from the outback.
Dont worry they definately did get the right guy for the Falconio murder.

especially if you're alone.
Only if your stupid and dont follow the advice of locals.
We handled a lot of snakes which we caught for the csiro when i was living up there and they will take off the minute they know your there, unless of
course your dumb enough to chase them you'll be fine. The only really agressive snake would be the eastern or western brown, you dont want to give
them a fright.
It really is some awesome country from searing desert at coober pedy in Sth Aust to tropical wetlands at the Top End and just about everything in
between, and plenty of locals who love nothing more than spinning a yarn over a cold beer.
