    Sad to hear! Who is to blame?

    Villagers, please dont kill the crocodile. Instead blame the parents for allowing the child to bathe in the river which is where crocodiles live.

    This is tragic. It wasn't long ago another child was almost a victim. Why cannot the authorities prohibit people from bathing in certain ares where they're vulnerable to crocodile attacks?

    This is what happens when you encroach into lands where animals live - they have no habitat so they go looking for food elsewhere. Anyways children should not be allowed to bathe unsupervised in a river. It's dangerous as it is even without the crocodile.

    Oh, I am so sorry, this time it is a crocodile though, but at times humans too behave so in our country...

    Are there no waring notices posted in places where there are crocodiles warning against bathing? If there are no warning signes then its high time they are put up by the local authorities. Crocodile human conflict seems to be gaining in recent months.
