In late March, a one-ton crocodile was caught in Uganda, according to ABC News.

According to reports, the crocodile, believed to be about 80 years old, had terrorized residents of the town and is thought to be responsible for one death and several other maulings.

It was transferred by truck to Murchison Falls National Park in Lolim, Uganda.
