Increase in crocodile sightings needs serious attention

There have been quite a number of crocodile sightings, as reported by local media, in the country recently; some have even detailed their gruesome encounters with these reptiles.

Surely, having these predators roaming residential areas is a threat to human lives.

With its ability to lay up to 60 eggs at a time, imagine what the crocodile population would be in five years’ time.

At the moment, the presence of crocodiles in our neighbourhoods is seen more as a nuisance, but if the authorities as well as the public don’t take it more seriously, I fear they may pose serious issues in the near future.
