JOHANNESBURG – Some fifteen thousand crocodiles escaped into the wild from a crocodile farm in South Africa.
NDJ World | Published: Jan 26 2013 Africa→World News
Relentless rain made the Limpopo river overflow causing the croc farm to flood, giving the man bred crocodiles an easy way out.
Thus far only 2,000 of the prehistoric animals have been captured. At least 10,000 more are still roaming free in Pretoria, near the Botswana border.
According to local police officers, the fierce predators have not yet caused any ‘anticipated’ accidents but they fear that unless the crocs are captured soon, casualties of livestock and humans will become reality as the crocs begin begin to hunt for food.
Police officers advice anyone to stay away from the crocodiles when they spot them and not try to single handed capture them but to call animal control services instead.
“These crocs may be farm bred but they are still monster killers,” said one police officer
The heavy rain has been pounding parts of South Africa without mercy over the past week causing many areas to flood; especially in the lowlands.
Experts forecast dry weather up ahead over the coming weeks.
