Indonesia offers reward for pulling tyre off crocodile's neck


Indonesian authorities are offering a reward to anyone who can remove a tyre stuck around the neck of a giant crocodile.

The 13-foot-long crocodile has had the tyre around its neck for more than three years now, sparking concern among the conservationists in Central Sulawesi's Natural Resources Conservation Office.

Authorities didn't reveal how much cash would be handed out, but simply said: "A reward will be given to anyone who can release the hapless reptile". 

They explained that they've had to turn to the public due to the lack of people trained in handling crocodiles.

The search, despite being open for a month, is yet to find any takers.
