While 64 have been recaptured, the search for crocodiles that escaped from a commercial breeding farm in Bonnievale remains ongoing with teams conducting patrols every night.
Authorities were alerted on Wednesday, March 3, that crocodiles escaped from one of the holdings at the facility.
It is not known how many young Nile crocodiles escaped in total, but it was discovered that the juvenile crocodiles managed to break through a wired fence.
The crocodiles are all 1.2m to 1.5m in length.
On Tuesday morning, Eiman provided an update, stating: “To date, 64 crocodiles have been captured with 25 having to be euthanised,” IOL reported.
CapeNature and their partners have set a number of humane traps with bait to attempt to recapture the animals that remain on the loose.
