This is tragic.
Absolutely terrible announcement, although perhaps if you choose to raise 40 crocodiles as your job in life, perhaps you might expect things will eventually end this way?
I have a strange and terrible fascination with Alligators and Crocodiles.
I find them terrifying, and I also find it fascinating how people choose to live so close to these things in their lives.
Meet the Croc Farmer who sadly lost his life as he was torn to pieces by 40 of his crocodiles after falling into their enclosure:

Truly terrible way to go out in life.
Must have been unspeakable terror.
From CBS News:
About 40 crocodiles killed a Cambodian man on Friday after he fell into their enclosure on his family’s reptile farm, police said.
Luan Nam, 72, was trying to move a crocodile out of a cage where it had laid eggs when it grabbed the stick he was using as a goad and pulled him in.
The main group of reptiles then set about him, tearing his body to pieces and leaving the concrete enclosure at the farm in Siem Reap awash with blood.
“While he was chasing a crocodile out of an egg-laying cage, the crocodile attacked the stick, causing him to fall into the enclosure,” Mey Savry, police chief of Siem Reap commune, told AFP.
“Then other crocodiles pounced, attacking him until he was dead,” he said, adding that the remains of Luan Nam’s body were covered with bite marks.
One of the man’s arms was bitten off and swallowed by the crocodiles, he said.
Luan Nam was the president of the local crocodile farmers’ association but his family may now sell his stock, after urging him for years to stop raising the reptiles, commune chief May Sameth told AFP.
Local media reported that the victim was from Po Banteay Chey village.
A two-year-old girl was killed and eaten by crocodiles in 2019 when she wandered into her family’s reptile farm in the same village, the police chief said.
Do you feel bad for this man?
Man’s Arm Amputated After Gator Attack
Longtime WLTReport readers know I am somewhat obsessed by alligators.
In an “I think they’re terrifying” way.
I don’t know how you Florida people do it.
How do you live with these lizard dinosaurs crawling around in every pond and body of water in your state?
Here’s the latest….

TRAGIC: Man's arm AMPUTATED after Gator bites it off!
— DailyNoah.com (@DailyNoahNews) May 24, 2023
From Fox News:
A 10-foot alligator attacked a Florida man near a pond outside a bar over the weekend, biting the man’s arm so severely that doctors were forced to amputate the limb, officials said.
The encounter unfolded early Sunday morning behind Banditos Bar in Port Charlotte, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.
The 23-year-old man was taken by helicopter to Gulf Coast Hospital in Fort Myers, where his arm was amputated, said Todd Dunn, a spokesman for Charlotte County Fire and EMS.
The victim, later identified as Jordan Rivera, spoke to WBBH-TV from his hospital bed on Monday, telling the station that despite losing an arm, he was happy to be alive.
“I didn’t lose my life, I lost an arm, it’s not the end of the world, you know,” Rivera said.
Rivera said that he had little memory of what happened, telling the station that he recalled the bathroom lines were long, and he had gone outside to relieve himself when he suddenly fell.
“I ended up in the water,” he said. “And that’s literally the last thing I remember.”
Another bar patron, Manny Hidalgo, told the Daily Sun that he heard the man screaming from the pond area and went outside looking for him in the darkness.
“He was yelling and swimming toward the shoreline,” Hidalgo said. “I ran and dragged him up onto the sand. I was scared to get close to the water because it was dark out.”
Rivera was pulled to safety, but the alligator had torn a chunk out of his right arm. Doctors amputated his arm just above the elbow.
I feel so bad for this man!

Horrific Alligator Attack On 85-Year Old Woman Caught On Camera
WARNING: readers may find this very distressing.
This is a tragic and horrific story.
I love the FREEDOM of Florida, but I’m not sure I would want to live there.
I’m both fascinated and terrified of all the alligators living in that state.
Every pool of water, no matter how small or shallow it may look, is very likely to house an alligator.
How do you people live around these things?
Sadly, one woman paid the ultimate price walking her small dog right along the shoreline.
Ugh, it just makes me sick.
This poor 85-year old woman taking her small dog out for a walk never suspecting it would be her final day.
And what a tragic and horrifying way to go.
I feel so bad for her and her family.
It was all captured on video:

From Fox News, the alligator is said to have weighed 600 to 700 pounds!
A video has emerged showing the moments before a 85-year-old Florida woman was fatally attacked by an alligator while walking her dog in a retirement community.
Gloria Serge was by a retention pond behind her house in Fort Pierce, Florida, on Monday when the 10-foot-long alligator crawled up from the water and first tried to attack her dog.
The surveillance footage shows the reptile swimming in a direct path toward Serge’s dog before it rises out of the water and scampers up the embankment in pursuit of the animal.
The elderly woman was taken to the ground with the alligator then biting her feet, and then she was dragged into the water. While the woman’s body was recovered from the retention pond, the dog survived.
“Please hurry!… It’s a huge gator. It’s huge, I don’t have anything to give to her,” a neighbor is heard saying in a frantic 911 call released by Fort Pierce Police.
“It’s too late. Oh, my God,” the woman is later heard saying.
“Did the gator pull her under?” the dispatcher asks.
“Yes,” the neighbor screams.
“Alright, you don’t see any of her body, nothing sticking out?” the dispatcher says.
“Nothing, she’s gone,” the woman replies.
The alligator, which is reported to weigh between 600 and 700 pounds, was trapped and killed by a nuisance gator trapper.
And now the video.

Absolutely awful thing to happen.
But just one question for the Reporter interviewing the neighbor….
Bro, what kind of question is: “Do you wish you would have gotten to her sooner?”
That’s your question?
