A life-threatening breeding: In Cambodia, a man was attacked by aggressive crocodiles and suffered an agonizing death.
Siem Reap – A horror scenario hit a 72-year-old man from Cambodia: On a crocodile farm in Cambodia, he was attacked by 40 crocodiles.
Deadly attack: 40 crocodiles maul farm owners
As "living dinosaurs", nationalgeografic.com describes the reptiles, which from one second to the next can turn their peaceful minds into aggression. They are among the ten most dangerous animals in the world and are reluctant to bow to commands. Even a crocodile from a family farm in northwestern Cambodia did not want to be driven out of the cage by its owner. Shortly before, the animal had laid eggs there.
"Then other crocodiles pounced on him and attacked him until he was dead"
Mey Savry, Siem Reap city police chief, told AFP
The crocodile did not understand the driving stick at all as an invitation to be set in motion. On the contrary, it felt invited to drag the 72-year-old man at the other end into the enclosure. Police chief Mey Savry describes the tragic incident: After the man fell into the facility, about 40 crocodiles rushed to the attack. Recently, an Australian was able to save himself with a belt knife in a crocodile attack – but with such a large horde, a single person is powerless.
Crocodile breeding is life-threatening – an attack is usually followed by an agonizing death
Crocodile breeding is not only life-threatening for humans. The animal welfare organization PETA describes it as a terrible form of animal cruelty, which is practiced especially in Australia and Asia. For leather bags from luxury brands, crocodiles are bred, cut open and skinned.

As long as those affected are still alive, a crocodile attack is very painful. An arm of the farm owner from Cambodia was bitten off and devoured by the crocodiles, according to police chief Savry. Deadly attacks like this are not uncommon: recently, a teenager in Indonesia and a dog in Australia were killed. (Felina Wellner/AFP)
