Crocodile eats scientist alive during feeding time at Indonesian research centre

A female scientist was eaten alive by a crocodile at an Indonesian research facility on Friday.

It is believed that the 17-foot long crocodile attacked the researcher, Deasy Tuwo, who was feeding it, by jumping up an eight-foot tall enclosure wall and dragging her in.

Staff members at the CV Yosiki Laboratory in North Sulawesi made the gruesome discovery Friday morning when they noticed a “strange shape” in the water, according to the Daily Mail. They then noticed the crocodile named Merry with the victim’s savaged body in its jaws. Only half of her remains were recovered.

One of Tuwo’s colleagues, Erling Rumengan, 37, said he was shocked to discover her body when he arrived at the laboratory on Friday morning.

“We were curious when we looked at the crocodile pool and there was a floating object. It was Deasy’s body,” he told the local Tribun Manado newspaper.

“We were afraid to touch it and reported the incident at the police station.”

Police say they are now trying to trace the crocodile’s owner, described as a Japanese businessman who opened the research facility. According to the Daily Mirror, Tomohon police chief Raswin Sirait said: “The owner must acknowledge this horrible incident”.

Officials have since taken the crocodile to a wildlife rescue facility to conduct medical tests.

    These prehistoric creatures do not belong on this earth anymore. Attacks on humans are getting worse and worse. It’s time to take them out and put pictures in history books to remember the gruesome creatures they are. They are from another time and are like having land sharks walking around eating humans. Enough is enough.

    @Allyson
    Crocodiles and other beautiful animals very much BELONG to this planet.
    We need to learn to respect their nature and NOT treat them as pets. It’s high time Man realized this.
    There is a reason for each ant and elephant to be sharing the space with us…. Just need to appreciate that
