In South Africa, alligators that were breeding on a farm escaped and the police began pursuing them.

On the 4th (local time), according to foreign media such as the British Guardian, on the 3rd, an unknown number of crocodiles escaped to a nearby river on a farm in Western Cape, South Africa.

The escaped crocodiles are 1.2 to 1.5 meters long, and they are the Nile crocodile, which is widely inhabited in Africa, officials said. Crocodiles raised for leather products can grow to an average of 5 m, and adult males weigh more than 0.5 tons.

Police, local farmers, and officials have formed a dedicated team to track alligators. They have captured 27 crocodiles so far through overnight patrols, and are installing additional traps.

A state government spokesman said, “Escaped crocodiles are used to feeding on a regular basis and do not hunt, so they are of a moderate risk.”
