A Villager Shouts For Help After Bumping Into A Huge Crocodile In His Toilet

In the bathroom of a villager's house in Uttar Pradesh, a two-meter crocodile was found, and the villager was screaming.

Some family members who saw the strange guest in the bathroom also panicked and called their neighbours for help in the incident that took place early Wednesday in Mohabbatpur village.

The villagers said the crocodile may have come out of the village pond and taken refuge in the bathroom. Fearing for their safety, the villagers barricaded the toilet and informed the local police, who alerted the forestry department.

The Forestry Department sent its team and at the same time contacted the SOS Wildlife Rapid Response Unit to help with the rescue operation.

A four-man SOS Wildlife Team with the necessary equipment, including a custom transport unit and safety equipment, joined the local forest officials. The team ensured that onlookers were at a safe distance and set up a food cage trap at the bathroom door to attract the crocodile. Within minutes the crocodile was in the cage trap and was later released into the Yamuna at Narangi Ghat, Bateshwar.

The CEO and co-founder of Wildlife SOS, Kartick Satyanarayan, said: "The family showed sharp thinking by locking the crocodile in the toilet, as this ensured that everyone was out of danger. We were able to help the forestry department to intervene in time to prevent a conflict situation and successfully rescue the reptile.

The Director of the NGO, Conservation Projects, Baiju Raj M.V., said: "Our team had to take extreme precautions because the limited space in the toilet did not allow for comfortable handling. So we decided to install a trap cage with food bait to ensure that there was minimal contact with the agitated reptile.

Regional Forestry Commissioner Jasrana, Tulsiram Dohare, said: "We immediately contacted the SOS Wildlife Team as they have assisted the Forest Service in carrying out similar rescue and release missions in the past.

In June, the team rescued a seven foot crocodile from a nearby village in Shikohabad.

The predatory crocodile, also known as the swamp crocodile, is native to the Indian subcontinent. It is most commonly found in freshwater environments such as rivers, lakes, streams, village ponds and artificial reservoirs.
