WATCH OUT! : Pet crocodile released into Rajang River
FREE AT LAST: The crocodile prepared for release into the river
A man at Jalan Lada yesterday finally decided to set free a young crocodile that he has been rearing in his backyard for eight years.
According to snake catcher Lai Lee Siew, the man sought his help to release the reptile into Rajang River.
And so with a group of ten men, they accomplished the task yesterday morning.
He said the man was given about 30 newly hatched crocodiles to keep as pets eight years ago, and he kept them in his backyard pond.
“Over the years, some of the reptiles disappeared during extremely high floods. Eventually only one was left and that was the one we just released into the river.”
Lai said after tying up the eight-foot-long reptile, he took it to Rantau Panjang where it was released.
