Russian rescuers have caught a two-meter-long crocodile in the republic of Khakassia’s Lake Shira, Southern Siberia. The reptile tore off the rope and escaped from its master, a local photographer.
At first the man decided to catch the runaway predator himself, but the crocodile escaped to the middle of the lake, where it was noticed by tourists sailing on a catamaran.
In the end, the photographer was pressed to appeal to local Emergency Ministry specialists for help.
