Free The Croc Contest

Central Sulawesi’s Natural Resources Conservation Office (BKSDA) launched a contest to free a 13-foot wild crocodile from a motorcycle tire that got lodged around its neck for over three years, an official announced here, today. “A reward will be given to anyone, who can release the hapless reptile,” Central Sulawesi BKSDA chief Hasmuni Hasmar stated in Palu City, Central Sulawesi Province, Tuesday, though he chose to not divulge details of the prize. The wild reptile, who many believe is a critically endangered Siamese crocodile, had to carry the tire around its neck since it was first spotted roaming in the Palu River to Palu Bay in 2016.
