A massive crocodile weighing one tonne has been caught by villagers in a remote area of the Philippines. At 21ft (6.4m), it is thought to be one of the biggest ever caught alive.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iamtsPypgXQ[/youtube]
After destroying four traps, hunters caught the crocodile in one made from steel cables. About 100 people from Bunawan township joined together to pull it to a clearing.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_du_etWWhug[/youtube]
It is now being kept in an area of the town where an eco-tourism park is planned. It will become the star attraction, and officials say they hope it will turn it “from a threat into an asset”.
