Seriously Massive Crocodile Captured Alive in Philippines UPDATED

Villagers of the Bunawan township in the Agusan del Sur province captured a saltwater crocodile, weighing in at over one ton, along a creek after a three-week hunt. Mayor Edwin Cox Elorde said the crocodile was witnessed attacking and killing a water buffalo last month, and is also suspected of attacking a fisherman who went missing in July.
