Giant One Ton Crocodile Caught In Uganda After Eating A Man

Uganda Wildlife Authority went on a hunt for four hours to trap the animal

A one-ton giant crocodile has been captured by the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) along the shores of Lake Victoria in Kakira village after it allegedly ate a man and maiming several others.

The crocodile is believed to be approximately 80-years-old and was trapped by officials using meat on a hook. It was later transported out of the village on a truck while more than 100 village residents watched in bewilderment.

An UWA official told The New Vision Ugandan Daily yesterday [April 3] that, "Residents appealed to UWA to hunt the crocodile following the death of a resident from Kakira town council in Jinja district."

Local fishermen also became too scared to approach the lake for fear of their lives.

The crocodile has since been transferred to the Murchison Falls National Park [March 31, 2014]. At 1,000 kg, the crocodile weighs just 75 kg less than Lolong, the world's largest crocodile, who died last year.
