April 15, 2012

After several days of waiting the wildlife officers captured the crocodile from Nilwala river at Malimbada. The croc is 11 ft long and captured closer to the place a school girl was killed by a killer croc.

The wildlife officers believes the crocodile could be the same that had attacked the girl, but also on the look for other crocodiles that may inhabit waters in the area. A team of wildlife officers led by Dr.Taraka Prasad continue the operation in looking for any other
killer crocs in the river.
