Croc hunt continues in Philippines
Published on Sep 7, 2011
Fear persists in the Bunwan farming community, The Philippines, despite the capture of a one-tonne crocodile at the weekend. Having successfully trapped and caught one croc, Wildlife official Ronnie Sumiller told AP; "There is a bigger one, and it could be the one creating problems." After a crocodile killed a child two years ago and a fisherman went missing in July, villagers say that fear remains and only 10% of it has been relieved by the first capture. Sumiller has set 20 steel cable traps with an animal carcass as bait along the creek where the first crocodile was caught and in a nearby marshland.
