Shock in KB village over capture of 2.5m croc

The villagers of Kg Marabau can breathe easy now with the capture of a 2.5-metre crocodile in the Marabau River, Monday.

The Sabah Wildlife Department placed an iron trap to catch the crocodile last Saturday when villagers informed it of the reptile’s foot and tail prints along the riverbank.

The crocodile was caught through cooperation of the police, Fire and Rescue Department and villagers.

Many of the villagers were shocked to know that quite a big crocodile was lurking in the river where they bathed, fished and washed clothes.
