A 20-foot saltwater crocodile captured six days ago was not eating and said to be stressed because of how it was handled and trapped.

The crocodile, named Lolong, was considered as the world’s largest saltwater crocodile captured alive and now the most attraction of local and international press.

The Bunawan Mayor decided to make Lolong as one of the tourist attraction in their town. Although some animal advocates want Lolong to be released, the Officials just want to ensure the safetiness of their residents.

The hunting team took 3-weeks of tiring hunting. A crocodile was reported to kill a child 2 years ago, and is suspected to eat a fisherman who is missing since July. The fisherman was last seen on the bridge of the river where crocodiles are said to be staying. Another report was when the residents saw a crocodile eating a buffalo.

The 20-foot crocodile  was named after the death of the leader of the Hunting Team, Lolong. Lolong died because of stroke.
