DAVAO CITY -- The biggest crocodile captured along a creek in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur on Sunday will soon become the "biggest star" in a future ecotourism park to be built in the town by the local government.
Villagers and veteran hunters ensnared a 20-foot saltwater crocodile (not freshwater as earlier reported) over the weekend after a three-week hunt along a creek in Bunawan town, where terrified villagers have reported at least one deadly attack by the huge reptiles.
The Municipal Government of Bunawan has no plan to transfer the captured reptile to Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Centre. It is now being held at the village of Consuelo.
The giant crocodile weighing 2,365 pounds (not 385 pounds as earlier reported) was captured following reports that some residents and livestock animals have gone missing for months now.
