An about 3m long crocodile is being helped out of a canal between Serengeti and Bushfellows lodge outside Groblersdal on Sunday.
SERENGETI/BUSHFELLOWS – An about 3mlong crocodile which was spotted in a water canal between Serengeti and Bushfellows lodge outside Groblersdal was safely rescued back into the Olifants River on Sunday.
According to members of the farming community, the crocodile was spotted in the area for a period of about a week.
On Sunday the lizard was spotted once again and help was sought to safely extract it out of the canal back into the Olifants River, where it is believed to originate from.
Life 24 Ambulance Services and Bellum Security offered help in transporting the crocodile back into the river from the canal.
In video footage on Arthur and Poppie Roden’s Facebook page, members of the community are seen working together tirelessly in an attempt to tie the huge crocodile before it was transported into the river.
Some seemingly scared members of the community were seen gathered on the banks alongside the canal in watch as the lizard was being safely helped out.
Greater Tubatse News has reliably learned that the crocodile was removed from the canal unharmed.
