Giant Crocodile Captured in Philippines (Full Video)

Residents and veteran hunters have captured a one-ton saltwater crocodile along a creek in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur. The town's mayor, Cox Elorde, reportedly said the local government is planning to make the giant crocodile the main attraction of an eco-tourism park to attract tourists.

The male crocodile measures 21 feet (6.4 meters) and weighs about 2,370 pounds (1,075 kilograms). Reports said that about 100 people used very thick ropes and cables to pull the crocodile from the creek to a clear area where a crane lifted it into a truck.

Quoting local crocodile experts, the municipal official said it was one of the largest crocodiles to be captured alive in the Philippines and is believed to be the largest in the world too.

Elorde told members of media that his constituents had witnessed that the giant crocodile killed a water buffalo in August. It was also suspected to have attacked and consumed a fisherman who is missing since July.

Villagers still fear for their lives as another giant crocodile, said to be larger than what was captured, is roaming freely in marshy areas in farms there.
