Crocodile killing

Tuesday, May 30, 2017. The harmonious relationship between man and wildlife continues to be an ongoing challenge, particularly in remote areas of the country.

And tonight there is another report of people disturbing wildlife in this district.

The latest incident is of a crocodile that was poached earlier this month.

The disturbing images, captured by a concerned farmer shows the decomposing carcass of the reptile, and also evidence that the crocodile was tied up and just left to die on the banks of a canal on the Rio Grande.

It is the second incident involving the killing of a crocodile on the Rio Grande in recent times.
