Thailand, October 16, 2011
This Sunday, hundreds of crocodiles appeared in the flooded streets of Ayutthaya, the former capital of Thailand. They have already caused 300 deaths and more are believed to be missing.
International media say that the Thai government offered a reward of 25 euros for each alligator captured alive.
“The crocodile must be captured for the safety of residents,” said the Health Minister Vitthaya Buranasiri.
Moreover, the Fisheries Department activated a hotline to mark and identify the presence of animals that can be dangerous and remain free through the streets.
A third of the territory of the Asian country has been affected by floods, causing about 300 deaths in the most humble provinces.
