A miner who used to feed crocodiles was killed by the reptiles on the Indonesian island of Belitung, an official said on Monday.
Juperi Ahmad, 53, went missing on Friday while holding a valve in a lake in the Dendang district mining site, said Danu Wahyudi, head of the local search and rescue agency.
His mutilated body was found the next day, he said.
“Locals told us that he often fed crocodiles there,” Danu said.
A colleague said the victim often berated him for hunting crocodiles.
“He will say that we should feed them so that they don’t bother us.
“He often fed them dogs,” said the colleague as quoted by Tribunnews.com. (dpa / NAN)
