A crocodile who is said to have been a man eater has been nabbed in Malimbada, Matara, Wildlife authorities said today. The Crocodile is suspected to be one of the culprits in the death of Nuwanthika Sathsarani a student who was taken away by a crocodile when she went to the banks of the river to wash her face.

The Crocodiles of the area have taken away three other human lives during the recent past. The 12 foot long crocodile was captured after residents and wildlife officials set a trap to capture it last night. However Veterinary surgeon Tharaka Prasad of the Wildlife department said that they are yet to ascertain if the nabbed crocodile is the one who caused the deaths of humans.(By Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk)

    Crocodiles are carnivores and ambush hunters. That's their nature. We can't punish them for being natural? May be we could relocate them to a croc friendly place

    Oh man! its a huge animal. Mr.Mervin, please give your hand to it and confirm if this is the man eater! ;)

    Only the physically challenged animals prey on humans. If they adapt to the taste of human blood, they will then keep attacking humans.

    Jeevan.. that's a load of croc!!! Hehee.. where on earth do you get this information from? Crocs attack cos it's in their nature, they are higher on the food chain.. they're predators.. not cos they're "physically challenged".. and they don't get hooked to human meat.. what did you think that they are like hanbal lecture?? Hahaha.. don't go by hearsay, get your facts right..

    To whome it may concern ,Thanks for the repling for the voice of the people, Clean the whole Nilwala river and all other rivers,Who may wants Crocks; keep them away from people,kill them all, if anyone says; save them? For what ?
    Suckle the milk or what,
    if the people can hunt them let them do it,
    i think the only country may be the Sri-Lanka in the world that value crokadile more than a human life.
