Crocodile Lives With Tyre Around Its Neck

A crocodile is still living painfully with a scooter tyre around its neck two years after it was first spotted with it in a river in Indonesia.

The poor reptile was first spotted by locals in Palu in in 2016 when it had headed to the riverbank with the scooter tyre around its neck, gasping for air.

The now 13-feet crocodile, believed to be the nearly 'virtually extinct' Siamese crocodile, was again spotted two weeks ago by locals when it had come to the riverbank, peeking out of water helplessly for air.

Seven volunteers are working to help the crocodile, supervised by Central Sulawesi Natural Resource Conservation Agency but their attempts have gone into vain.
