Search for crocodiles freed in southern Africa floods continues

As many as 10,000 farmed crocodiles are still on the loose in the Limpopo river between Botswana and South Africa, following the worst floods in more than a decade.

Surging waters forced the owners of the farm where some 15,000 of the animals are kept to open flood gates to stop the crocodiles being crushed.

The farmers say the hunt for the escaped crocodiles is continuing each night, and they have urged locals who spot any not to try to capture them without help.

I can’t keep a straight face. The BBC weather dude reminds me of no one more than Eric Idle.
