A GIANT 21ft crocodile feared to have attacked several villagers has been
caught after a three-week hunt.

The one-ton male saltwater beast was trapped in a creek in Bunawan, in the

Philippines, on Saturday night.

It is one of the largest crocs ever to be captured alive in the country.

Dozens of locals and staff from a crocodile farm set up traps to catch the
monster after reports of a number of savage crocodile attacks.

The reptile is suspected of killing a tragic fisherman who went missing in

July.

The croc may now be put into a planned ecotourism park in the southern town.

Mayor Cox Elorde says that this would turn it "from a threat into an asset".

After the hunt, he said: "We were nervous but it's our duty to deal with

a threat to the villagers. When I finally stood before it, I couldn't
believe my eyes."

About 100 people had to pull the crocodile from the creek to a clearing where

a crane lifted it into a truck.
