First spotted in 2016 on a Palu riverbank in Indonesia, the 13-foot long reptile was recently spotted again, as this footage shows. The Central Sulawesi Natural Resource Conservation Agency is coordinating rescue efforts by trying to lure the crocodile with bait but so far those attempts have been unsuccessful. Rescuers fear that if the tire is not removed soon, it will strangle the crocodile in the next few months because of its growing body.
