Weekly Discussion #9: To kill or not to kill crocodiles

Posted on July 22, 2011, Friday

The “Croc Squad” comprising personnel from the Police, Fire & Rescue Dept, Rela and Kabon District office were given the licence to kill crocodiles in Batang Lupar by the Forest Dept. The move came about when crocodiles in the areas frequently attacked local riverine folk and their livestock.

The hunt came to an abrupt end with one kill. The hunters had to stop because of the high costs involved to cull these reptilians.

Nature lovers are appalled by this move and some believe a better and more humane way could be found to allow co-existence of crocs and men.
