World's Biggest Crocodile Caught in the Philippines
In Bunawan town, Agusan del Sur, Philippines, a one ton salt water crocodile has been caught by a veteran hunter as reported last Monday. The 21-foot (6.4-meter) male crocodile was finally caught after three weeks of hunting. The crocodile was caught last Saturday by a trap made by steel cables.

From the account of Mayor Edwin Cox Elorde, the crocodile has killed a water buffalo which was witnessed by villagers. There are also rumors that the giant crocodile ate the village fisherman which gone missing since July.

Elorde now plans to make the giant crocodile as the main attraction to their planned ecotourism park. Villagers have been quoted that they're happy that dangerous crocodile turned from a threat to an asset.

After this successful capture, local hunters are now hunting for the other crocodiles, which are very abundant in the vast marshland of Agusan.
I just hope the crocodiles are protected and Agusan won't be a hunting ground for crocodiles.
