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.

  1. Ok..Lets brainstorm together:
    Option 1: Call the Australians. They're pretty good at it.
    Option 2: Tranquilize from far (if it can pierce its thick skin).
    Option 3: Lure, trap, and sedate.

    Whatever you do, just don't wear Crocs shoes. Pretty sure it just hates it as much as we do.

  2. How about just cut the tire off???They will need more than 3 people to do this though. While doing this, they should be more than 3 feet away from the croc to not get bitten. Crocs move sluggish on shallow water, but their speed still shouldn't be underestimated.
