"Nadia" the giant croc terrorizing southern Thai town

NAKHON SI THAMMARAT: -- A giant crocodile called Nadia is spooking the residents of Nakorn Sri Thammarat after it was confirmed she had escaped.

 

The female croc is a giant specimen of 5 metres in length and nobody knows where she is.

 

Authorities have finally been forced to admit she had escaped from the central Thung Tha Lart park after four days of denials. They said they denied the claims because they didn't want to panic the locals, reports Manager Online.

 

Now this has come back to bite them. Wildlife officials are telling the locals not to kill the beast on any account. It is a rare specimen and they want to handle its capture.

 

But overhead photography and a four day boat search has failed to find Nadia.

 

Earlier district chief Chaonawat Senapong had dismissed the idea that the beast had escaped saying it was news leaked by a political rival to discredit him.

 

But yesterday evening it was confirmed that Nadia was on the loose along with another two foot long creature.

 

Manager reported that just two crocs out of four were reported still in an enclosure yesterday evening.

And it doesn't matter if it bites your relatives or swallows them alive. Just don't kill it, the owner paid a lot of money for it.

 

Trust us we are Thai, Thailand is very safe.

"Nadia" the giant croc terrorizing southern Thai town"

Nadia hasn't terrorized anybody.................yet.

Until she is reported as having attacked a hapless flood victim, it's just another escaped croc. I hope the creature is captured and returned to a secure and safe place and not shot by some local hero who wants a pair of boots, belt and wallet.

Or who wants to protect his children/pets/relatives....it's more important to have a big croc instead of your kids.

 

Do you live in Esan by the way?

Reminds me of 'jaws' with the old mayor saying of course it's safe to go in the water.

It's not an indigenous critter, it's not an endangered species, it could be a hazard to anyone who's not familiar with their habits, it does have commercial value, and they taste a lot like chicken.  Not to mention all the indigenous critters they'd be saving by taking it out of the food chain- where it does not belong.

 

Back home, they'd have the rotisserie going around the same time they bring in the errant 'gator.  (Edit: we leave the crocs alone- not so many of them)   With boiled corn and new potatoes and cole slaw at the ready.

Thanks Buddha that Thailand got no nuclear power plants, can imagine what would happened if they had and an accident happened with the reactor.

It's called the Siamese crocodile for a reason.
It's critical endangered species.

How is the crock "terrorising" the town when nobody has seen it or knows where it is?
