A 72-year-old farmer was killed by 40 crocodiles family’s reptile farm
Luan Nam was trying to move a crocodile out of its cage in Cambodia where it had laid eggs when it grabbed the stick he was using as a goad and pulled him in. A group of reptiles swarmed him, tearing his body to pieces and leaving the enclosure in Siem Reap awash with blood.
The body was pictured, recovered, after the incident, but police said the man’s arm was torn off and swallowed by the crocodiles. Farmers in Cambodia often breed and sell crocodiles to buyers in China, Thailand and Vietnam where their skin can be made into leather and other products.
Mey Savry, police chief of Siem Reap commune, said, ‘While he was chasing a crocodile out of an egg-laying cage, the crocodile attacked the stick, causing him to fall into the enclosure.’ ‘Then other crocodiles pounced, attacking him until he was dead,’ he said. Images after the attack showed the huge beasts still paddling in the pool after the body was recovered.
