Police in Cambodia reported that a crocodile farm owner was torn apart by 40 reptiles when he fell into the enclosure.
Luan Nam (72), was trying to remove an animal from a cage, when the animal grabbed his stick and pulled him into its mouth.
The concrete enclosure near the city Siem Reap was covered with blood after the other crocodiles “pounced” on his body and tore it to pieces.
According to Mey Savry, the local police chief, one of the victim’s limbs was eaten and a bite mark was found on the rest of the body.
Mr Savry stated: “While he chased a crocodile from an egg-laying enclosure, the crocodile bit the stick and caused him to fall in the enclosure.
Then, other crocodiles attacked him and killed him.
Mr. Nam is the president of a local association for crocodile producers.
His family has been telling him to stop breeding reptiles for many years.
A two-year old girl was eaten by crocodiles in 2019 at a farm near the ruins of Angkor Wat.
In Cambodia, reptiles and their skin, eggs, and meat are kept.
