RAYONG – October 3, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]: An unknown number of crocodiles escaped from a Rayong crocodile farm after it was swamped by flooding from heavy rainfall. The farm is located at Moo 3 Soi Mabkraloook, Amphur Baan Khai, Rayong province. It is one of three crocodile farms in the district, but the only one where the crocodiles escaped.

After the flooding, the farm was inspected by several officials, including the Baan Khai sheriff Mr. Tiwa Phromin; Mr. Pramote Chantamit, the Lord Mayor of Subdistrict Administrative Organization of Nong Lalok, livestock officers, policemen and staff from related organizations.

Officials found the collapsed crocodile pond that allowed the offspring of crocodiles to escape, but the owner of the farm didn’t voluntarily inform that fact initially to the officers. However, the officials knew about the escaped reptiles, because there was the important evidence from the local people who threw a net and caught a crocodile more than 1 meter long. The owner of the farm had asked for his crocodile back.

The owner was identified as Mr. Paibul Yongchaihiran, age 67, address 45/9 Moo 3 Tambon Nong Lalok, Amphur Baan Khai, Rayong province.


Mr. Paibul said that on October 2 at 5 p.m. there was forest water that flew into the crocodile pond, which made a breach in the pond where he feeds the 70 baby crocodiles, which have lengths between 70-80 cm.

The 3-foot-deep pond is more than 100 meters long. After the flooding, two crocodiles were still in the pond, but four other crocodiles had escaped, he said.

Mr. Paibul has already moved the remaining offspring of crocodiles from the small pond to live with the bigger size crocodiles over 1 meter long. He said that the technician repairing the breach in the pond also found 4 offspring of crocodiles lying dead on the cement.

Mr. Paibul knows of people who caught two offspring of crocodiles, which they haven’t returned to him, but the owner is willing to receive them all back.

Mr. Paibul warned the people to be aware of the escaped crocodiles, because he is afraid that there might be also adult crocodiles that fled from the farm. Also in the last year, a worker of his farm forgot to close the door of crocodile’s pond, which allowed a large crocodile of about 100 kg weight to escape.

Inspecting officers also found three ponds of crocodiles about 6 meters square, and evidence of damages to one pond, which the owner had covered with a zinc plate and a net. The livestock officers inspected the sturdiness of the crocodile ponds to prevent any more crocodiles from escaping and frightening people.

Since Mr. Paibul still didn’t know the exact amount of escaped crocodiles, the sheriff commanded him to pump out all water in his pond, so he could count all the remaining offspring of crocodiles, so he will know the exact amount of the lost offspring.

The sheriff also command the Subdistrict Administrative Organization of Nong Lalok to make an announcement to let the people know that if anyone sees the escaped offspring of crocodiles, to please inform Mr. Paibul, or if they catch any crocodiles, to please return them to the owner who will give them a reward.

Several of the escaped crocodiles, both small and large, were discovered in the pond of Mr. Banyong Kongjamroon address 45/7 Moo 3 Tambon Nong Lalok, Amphur Baan Khai.

The reporters noted that after the officials had inspected the crocodile farm, people caught a big crocodile in the brook that was over 1.5 meters long. This showed that the owner of the farm has not been truthful about the real size and amount of escaped crocodiles. Many Rayong residents are helping to catch crocodiles by throwing nets over them, and have been catching them in varying sizes.
