In news that could only have come from my nightmares, The Atlantic Newswire is reporting that 15,000 crocodiles escaped from a farm in South Africa. While many have been captured, a reported 7,500 are still missing. Seventy. Five. Hundred. Let that sink in for a minute.

Apparently the crocodiles belong to the Rakwena Crocodile Farm in the northern part of the country, where the owners were forced to open gates to prevent a storm surge following heavy rains over the past week. This allowed the daring crocs to escape. According to the AFP, "One turned up on a school rugby pitch 75 miles away."

Sounds like they could use a little help from the Gator Boys, huh?
