May 23. Fishermen captured a 2 meters and a half crocodile on a mangrove area in the southern Philippine province of Zamboanga Sibugay. Police said it took custody of the reptile captured last week near the town of Siay, about 150 km east of Zamboanga City.  The crocodile bore hack wounds on its thick armor, but it did not pose any danger to the life of the animal. It was the first time that a wild crocodile was captured in the area, although smaller crocs can be found in many wild habitats on Mindanao. The huge reptile was placed in a caged pond inside a police camp in Zamboanga City.
