PHUKET: Local officials have called in the ‘Kraithong Lumnamtapi’ team of marine wildlife experts to help catch the crocodile spotted in mangroves near Saphan Hin, on the outskirts of Phuket Town, last week.

 

The ‘Kraithong Lumnamtapi’ team was last called in to catch the female croc ‘Yanui’, which they trapped in nets near the rocks off Koh Kata, just offshore from Layan Beach, at about 5:30am on July 29, 2018.

 

Now they have been called in to help track down and catch the crocodile spotted near Saphan Hin last week.

How come they are allowed to trap it, capture it and take it out of the wild, when just picking up a sea cucumber and a crab get you jail time and deportation?

 

Crocodiles are native wildlife here and part of the ecosystem. The mangroves are protected area...so this crocodile should have protection there.
