    This croco looks not in a good shape, it's resting on one the side. Looks hurt or at least in a heavy shock, this can result in his death. This type of animals should be captured only by experts, not by any youths

    look at the way the croc has been handled. Looks so inhuman and I doubt whether it can survived. Who gave the authority to youth to catch the croc?
