Mozambique kills 13 crocodiles to stop man-animal conflict
Maputo: Wildlife authorities in Mozambique have killed 13 crocodiles in an effort to stop what they termed "animal-human conflict", Xinhua reported.
According to Radio Mozambique, the operation took place following the death of 18 people in the northwestern province of Tete, at the end of 2012.
The victims were killed by crocodiles in Mutarara, Cahora Bassa, Zumbo, Magie and Moatize when they were fetching water from rivers.
A large number of crocodile eggs were also collected along river banks in Tete.
Last year in Tete, 40 people were killed not only by crocodiles but by lions, elephants and leopards, officials said.
