Officials from Krabi Fisheries Office yesterday checked a crocodile farm owned by Nikorn Piwon in Klongtom. Officials found that all the registered crocodiles were in the farm.

Khun Sakda Sukkasem from Krabi Fisheries Office says, “the crocodile that was caught is a fresh water crocodile. The person who raised this crocodile might have release it because they were afraid of legal action for having possession of an unregistered protected animal.”

“There are 19 crocodile operators in Krabi which have more than 2,000 crocodiles. There are 5 crocodiles operators with 662 crocodiles in Klongtom, alone.”
