PANIC As 10 Crocodiles Escape From Zoo

No fewer than 10 crocodiles escaped from a zoo in the southern Thai province of Nakhon Si Thammarat since floods hit the area recently, local media reported on Saturday.

The incident has sparked panic among residents in populated areas in the province.

The report noted that the Deputy Mayor of the province, Manas Pongyeelar said that all the reptiles, deer and rare bird species had escaped from Thai Lad Zoo that housed over 10 crocodiles, some measuring up to five meters long.

Authorities said crocodiles were swimming through rising flood waters and warned the locals to take special caution.

They added that municipal workers had tried to locate the animals in order to keep them away from populated areas, but the rising water level made the task complicated.
