Suphan Buri croc proves elusive, sends chills down residents’ spines

Suphan Buri croc proves elusive, sends chills down residents’ spines

The appearance of a crocodile on the banks of Thawa River has put the fear in the hearts of residents in Suphan Buri's Bang Kung sub-district.

The crocodile’s tell-tale footprints in the mud led hunters to speculate that it is approximately one metre long.

On Wednesday, the Muang Suphan Buri district chief ordered officials to capture the creature, starting with luring it up to the river bank using meat as bait.

Locals watched as the officials attempted to capture the animal and waited on the bridge above the river for it to appear.

The task went in vain.

The wily croc did not emerge from the water surface despite chicken meat being strategically placed on the river banks.

Residents are now holding their breath as the officials continue to hunt for the animal. They have been warned not to get too close to the river – that is not until the elusive crocodile is captured.
