Provincial governor Wichawut Jinto said villagers carried the crocodile to Ban Khlong Rang School in a fishing net, adding that this croc had last been seen in the Khlong Leelet canal early last month.

“Capturing the crocodile has been tough because the canal has many turnoffs and is near the estuary,” he said.

Thanking the villagers for their bravery and ensuring children’s safety, he said government officials will move the crocodile to a safe place.
