Pictures: Giant 1-tonne crocodile captured alive in Philippines

MANILA (AP) - Villagers and experts have captured a saltwater crocodile which they plan to make the star of a planned ecotourism park in a southern Philippine town. Mayor Cox Elorde said on Monday that dozens of villagers and experts ensnared the 6.4m male crocodile along a creek in Bunawan township in Agusan del Sur province after a three-week hunt. It is one of the largest crocodiles to be captured alive in the Philippines in recent years. Mr Elorde says the crocodile killed a water buffalo in an attack witnessed by villagers last month and is also suspected of having attacked a fisherman who went missing in July. Mr Elorde says putting the huge crocodile in a tourism park will turn it 'from a threat into an asset'.
