Forestry Dept gives green light to kill croc

KUCHING Sarawak forestry has given the green light for killing or capture of the estuarine crocodile which threaten the villages at Kampung Bako with fear. Estuarine crocodile or locally known as "buaya katak" is a PROTECTED ANIMAL listed in the Wild Life Protection Ordinance 1998.

"If the animal is a threat and is declared to be dangerous to life or property as in the recent case, hunting , killing or capturing of the said animal involved in the attack is allowed in accordance with the provision made in the Ordinance," said Sarawak Forestry's chief wild life warden Wilfred Landon in a statement yesterday.

"Ground investigations which had been conducted earlier,give evidence that the victim was attacked by a crocodile," said Wilfred.


<previously there was a case about a boy killed by a croc>

... full news in the borneo post Sept 7,2006.

I read this news and I was like wtf? The Forestry Dept is so... unproffesional in their work. HOW can such department be authorized to protect the nature in the country! "They just gave the freakin green light to kill an freakin PROTECTED ANIMAL in their own natural HABITAT !

Don't they freakin learn anything from the late Steve Irwin? They can always try to capture and relocate the crocs !

Now we learn that the Forestry Dept protect the protected animals by allowing villagers to kill it.

Talk without brains, that's what the authorities are famous for.

Maybe in the worst scenario, yes, killed the one croc or crocx that has been coming back and disturbing the peace and creating harm to the local people, such as the legendary 'Bujang Sarawak'? but they have to get ready if the killing leads to profit making

Poor crocs. I hope all of them would swim out from S'wak into Steve Irwin's Australia's happy zoo.
They would never be happy here with those ignorance always on to them.

I heard from the locals, it's a custom to kill one croc if the croc attacked and killed a human.

"An eye for an eye"

Crocs there don't usually attack human, unless they are provoked. I am not sure how this case is, but that's how it has always been.

Reason given is, if the animal has eaten flesh, it will attack again and again cause food(human) is easy to find.

Same custom is practised in India/Peninsular for tigers.
