A man in Thailand has installed the ultimate deterrent to burglars - two adult crocs

Owner Awirut Nathip keeps 15-year-old Thong, who was originally bought as a pet, in the yard at his home and Nguen under the house in a ditch because he is so aggressive, Sky News reported.

They have both been the perfect guards so far. There has not been a single burglary for the last 15 years.

“If we’re upstairs he’ll come and lie in front of the door. We’re not worried at all. No one would dare to get in,” Nathip said.

Even neighbours say they rest easy with the predators nearby and have welcomed the unusual crime prevention method.
