The population of the Ndunda II neighborhood in Beira municipality, central Mozambique, is being menaced by crocodiles belonging to a local businessman, the head of the administrative post told Lusa on Friday.
“These crocodiles belong to a local businessman who sells the animals, only now they are threatening the local population,” Isabel Matos, head of the Manga Loforte administrative post in Sofala, said.
The crocodiles have escaped from the protected area during the rainy season, it is thought, and have headed for the centre of the neighbourhood, where they hide in pools of water and drainage ditches.
Since the beginning of the year, three crocodiles have been spotted in a ditch by residents. Matos says there is no record of anybody being hurt, and that the residents have even managed to kill one of the animals.
“It is a worrying situation and, as district government, we have warned the owner of the land to take action before the animals attack someone,” Matos concluded.Source: Lusa
