Crocodiles reportedly ate both his arms and one of the farmer’s legs.

Mr Savry explained that Mr Nam was “chasing” the crocodile out of an egg-laying cage when the incident occurred.

When he fell into the enclosure, the other reptiles “pounced” and attacked the man “until he was dead”.

Mr Nam’s body is now with his family in the village of Po Banteay Chey, and they are expected to sell the crocodiles in his care.

Speaking to AFP, commune chief May Sameth said his family members had tried for years to persuade the elderly man to stop farming the reptiles.

A regional report issued in 2016 estimated that the country’s roughly 900 farms held a captive population of 250,000.

Farmers capturing the reptiles have caused a dip in their natural numbers, and Mr Nam’s death isn’t the first recorded at an enclosure.

In 2019, a two-year-old girl died after she wandered into an enclosure on her family’s crocodile farm, also in Siem Reap.

The grieving dad climbed into the pit and retrieved what was left of her skull.

Police lieutenant Och Sophien told local media that the toddler’s mother had lost track of Rom while caring for her newborn child.

The official said the crocodiles killed the young girl, “leaving only her skull”….CONTINUE READING
