Crocodile Attack in Choiseul Province

A six year old girl is still missing in what is presumed to be a crocodile attack last week.

The attack happened at Kakaza village on the southern part of Choisuel on Monday and villagers are still searching for her body along the river where she was swimming at the time of her disappearance.

One villager stated that rivers around Choiseul are infested with crocodiles and has supported calls to the government for the lifting on the ban imposed on crocodile hunting as an alternative to decreasing the high number of crocodiles.

Meanwhile a large crocodile was spotted along the waters near the children's park area in west of Honiara over the weekend, the sighting prompted police to warn the public of wandering into the area in which the crocodile was seen.
