A 43 year-old woman fell prey to a crocodile, while she was bathing in the Nilwala River near Rajagalgoda, Kamburupitiya yesterday, the Police said.
The victim was a resident of Kadduwa.
The Kamburupitiya Police, Disaster Management Center (DMC) officials and residents have launched search operations to discover the victim’s body. Further investigations are being carried out by the Kamburupitiya police.
Usual story, woman eaten by crocodile, police conducting investigations. On what? Is it to see whether crocodile was hungry?

A simple metal mesh barrier to demarcate the bathing area would protect the people from crocs. It has been successfully done in most countries where human/crocs conflicts occur.

These are million year old reptiles from jurasick period who are cannibal in there blood & culture ,no need to protect them,kill them all.

Its the duty of the authorities to erect a metal mesh barrier where people bath in the Nilwala ganga. The answer is not what this moron prubuu suggests. Crocodiles too have a right to life as any other and should be protected. A barrier would stop the crocs invading the bathing area. The other alternative is to ban bathing in the river and have wells dug for that purpose. Destroying wild life is not the answer.

Are they eating each other to call cannibals?

Any time you travel around Nilwala river,it can be seen at least one crocodile gazing around for a prey on the surface of water.We love nature but can we live with crocodiles closer to us?Can someone send a white van to abduct them?
