Hunt for crocodile near Pasir Ris

Posted by jtsmyth8 on August 6, 2008

A hunt is on for the crocodile spotted in the mangrove swamp near the Tampines River canal in Pasir Ris Park.

The reptile, which was over a metre long, was first spotted in a mangrove swamp two weeks ago on Sunday by retiree Ong Wee Lee, 70, a park regular.

On Sunday, he caught sight of it again and this time his daughter snapped a photograph, which made the headlines in the local media over the last two days.

By Tuesday, traps had been set in the area by officers from the PUB, the national water agency .

Several other ‘hunters’ were on its trail – a mix of curious onlookers and nature lovers all eager to shoot it, with their cameras that is. (story)
