Half-eaten man found at Philippine crocodile farm

 
 

MANILA (AFP) - The body of a man half-eaten by saltwater crocodiles has been found at a Philippine breeding farm for the giant reptiles, police said on Tuesday.

Employees found the 57-year-old victim in a pond used by the crocodiles, which can grow up to 4.3 m long, on Friday, police officer Lowell Neniza said.

Authorities had no idea how the man, named by police as jobless Sorbelo Sajona, entered the privately-owned farm, Mr Neniza said.

While there was no sign of any other injuries, police have yet to officially conclude he was killed by crocodile bites, he told AFP by telephone.
