For weeks, a huge salt water crocodile has terrorized a fishing district in the Philippines, attacking several people and suspected of having eaten at least one fisherman.
At last, it was caught in a trap, and will now be transferred to a zoo where it is expected to be the big star.
It IS rather big, measuring 6.4 metres (previous record was 5.74), weighing 1075 kilograms..

From the title of this thread, I first thought you were talking about shoes. I think the zoo should at least give that family free access.

There are several other large crocs still at large in the vicinity, any one of which could eat a person. Regardless, it is only suspected that a croc killed and ate the guy. All they actually know is that he disappeared when he went out fishing.
