Indonesian mob slaughters ‘hundreds’ of crocodiles in revenge attack

A mob of villagers has killed almost 300 crocodiles at a sanctuary for the animals in the Indonesian province of West Papua.

Family members and locals were enraged by the incident and blamed the close vicinity of the reptile farm to a residential area, reported Indonesian media outlet Kompass. "The breeding should not be open and these animals should be placed away from the farm location of livestock", one local resident said.

Images from the scene showed dozens of dead crocodiles lying on top of each other and covered in blood after the attack at a breeding farm in Papua province.

"But the mob, which numbered in the "hundreds", was not satisfied", says the Straits Times, and headed to the crocodile farm armed with knives, machetes and shovels which they used to slaughter some 292 crocs, from 10cm-long babies to 2m-long adults, the authorities said.
