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.

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”.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
