No crocodiles seen in Middelburg

2012-04-18 13:32

Middelburg - There is no proof of crocodiles in the Klein Olifants River in Middelburg, the Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency said on Wednesday.

"There is no confirmation that it was crocs," said Janie de Bruyn, the agency's anti-poaching head, who also helps with other complaints.

"I visited the area after a report of the sighting but didn't find any proof. There have been no attacks involving crocodiles."

He was responding to a report in the Citizen newspaper, which claimed that three small crocodiles and one large one had been spotted in the river.

    crocs reproduce rapidly, They are invading peoples space in Australia and many fatalities are caused by this. climatewise we're very similar and I think lack of proper investigation on this one will result in many unfortunate fatalities aswell.

    There is no such thing as crocs invading the people's space, crocs were here first before africa were populated even, its the people that's invading their space

    All they needed to do was ask villagers who stays nearby. Not to go there for five minutes and make claims

    I went outside just now and did not see any cars in the street in front of my house. There are no cars in the street in front of my house. How idiotic a statement that there are no crocodiles in the river!!!!!! If someone saw them there, they are there Crocs are illusive. How do you think they manage to survive in the rivers. By showing themselves????

    There is actually a confirmed sighting on 25 October 2012 of a 2.5m croc in the river. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pskjfLV5zs4
