Villagers and veteran hunters in Bunawan township Philippines have captured a one-ton saltwater crocodile after a three-week hunt. The 21-foot male crocodile is suspected of having attacked a fisherman who went missing in July. About 100 people had to pull the crocodile, which weighs about 2,370 pounds. It could be one of the largest crocodiles to be captured alive. They plan to make the croc the star attraction of a planned ecotourism park in a southern Philippine town.
