A Cambodian farmer, Luan Nam, has passed on after forty of his crocodiles att@cked him.
According to New York Post, he was att@cked on Friday, May 24, while attempting to wr@ngle one of his reptiles.
“The “crocodiles po¥nced, att@cking him until he was d£ad,” Mey Savry — police chief of Siem Reap commune, where the man’s farm was located — told Viral Press of the freak accid£nt.
The 72-year-old victim had reportedly entered the enclosure so he could remove one of the crocs from a cage where it had laid eggs. Things took a devastating turn after the b£ast “att@cked the stick” he was using to corral it, “causing him to fall into the enclosure,” according to Savry.
All of a sudden, the reptile shepherd was beset by dozens of the animals, which ripped his body to shreds, leaving the paddock awash in bl@@d. Accompanying pics show the animals paddling through a pool of Nam’s bl@@d, and video depicts officials removing his remains from the area.
According to the police chief, Nam’s corpse was riddled with b#te marks, and he reportedly lost both arms and a leg, which the crocs had sw@llowed during the feeding frenzy. His mangled body has been transported to the family home.
CBS News reports that community members had been advising Luan for years to quit the business.
