As an act of revenge, angry villagers killed a crocodile for eating their goat in the Mirpurkhas district of Sindh province. This was a rare incident that happened in Pakistan’s Sindh province.
The residents of Mureed Khan Marri village located at Khaan Road, some 12km from the city, claimed that the crocodile had attacked a goat in their village. “It [reptile] has killed our goat,” said a villager. “We have killed it with an axe,” he added.
In a video circulating on social media, the villagers can be seen transporting the reptile tied with a rope to another village. “We will hand over the body to a landlord and will get some reward,” the man added.
Sindh Wildlife Department was unaware of this cruel act on the part of the villagers. “This is criminal negligence on the part of Wildlife Department”, Amjad Rasheed, a famous environmentalist based in Balochistan lamented. He said awareness has to be created among the people about the importance and existence of wildlife in the country.
