It took three weeks to catch him, but Lolong the crocodile is no longer a menace to the residents of Bunawan in the Philippines. About 100 people used ropes and steel cable traps to capture the one-ton animal.

From the article:
Quote
The town's mayor Edwin Cox Elorde said news of the record sparked celebrations, but said there are also concerns that more giant crocodiles might be lurking in a nearby marshland and creek where villagers fish.

"We're really proud because it proves the rich biodiversity of our place but at the same time, there are fears that Lolong may not be alone," he said.

A 7 meter crocodile is not a crocodile. It's baby Godzilla.
