Farmer, 72, is ripped apart and killed by FORTY crocodiles after falling into their enclosure


A Cambodian farmer, 72, was killed by ‘about 40 crocodiles’ Friday morning after falling into their enclosure on the family’s reptile farm.

Luan Nam was trying to move a crocodile out of its cage in Cambodia where it had laid eggs when it grabbed the stick he was using as a goad and pulled him in.

A group of reptiles swarmed him, tearing his body to pieces and leaving the enclosure in Siem Reap awash with blood, according to local report.

The body was pictured, recovered, after the incident, but police said the man’s arm was torn off and swallowed by the crocodiles.

Farmers in Cambodia often breed and sell crocodiles to buyers in China, Thailand and Vietnam where their skin can be made into leather and other products. 

The remains of the man’s body were covered with bite marks.

Images after the attack showed the huge beasts still paddling in the pool after the body was recovered.

The victim was from Po Banteay Chey village within the Siem Reap commune, outside of the city.

Nam was also named as the president of the country’s Crocodile Association.

He was said to have died at around 5am on May 26 2023.
