Activists seek release of giant Philippine crocodile - TODAYonline

Animal rights activists urged Philippine authorities yesterday to release a captured giant crocodile back into the wild, but the mayor of the town where it was caught refused, saying that it poses a threat to the residents. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said the 6.1m saltwater crocodile, nicknamed Lolong, should be returned to its natural habitat as it is likely to develop abnormal behaviour and endanger its caretakers and visitors to a proposed park if it remains in captivity. But Mayor Edwin Cox Elorde of southern Agusan del Sur province's Bunawan township said that about 1,300 residents who rely on fishing in the area could be attacked by the crocodile, believed to be the largest in captivity in the world.
