Gotcha! Rangers use boat, net and tape to capture crocodile

2008-09-25 00:00

THE crocodile in the farm dam at Tala Valley was captured on Wednesday night.

Farmer Carl Griffiths, who witnessed the capture, said the rangers used the boat to pull the net around the crocodile. “They slowly hauled the net in until they could lasso it at close range. Then they had to tie its jaws closed before bringing it to the bakkie to immobilise it properly with duct tape.”
