PHUKET:-- A majority of people voting in an online opinion poll by The Phuket News have called for officials to set free “Leypang”, the saltwater crocodile caught on Phuket’s west coast earlier this month.

 

Debate has raged among marine wildlife and conservation experts about what should be done with Leypang.

 

Some called for Leypang to be set free, others said the 200-kilo croc should be kept in a natural reserve where he can be studied. Officials from the Department of Fisheries initially called for experts wanting to take Leypang off their hands to come and collect him.

It should be studied in its natural environment, not in a zoo.
