As Bangkok steels itself for massive flooding, a different kind of problem has also presented itself: scores of crocodiles and alligators on the loose.
Thailand, which is home to more crocodiles than any other country and supplies gator and croc skins to the rest of the world, saw many of its reptiles escape large ranching farms when the torrential rain started several months ago.
The government’s solution: A reward of 1,000 baht ($33) to anyone who catches a reptile on the loose. A poll on the Bangkok Post shows a majority of voters think a monetary reward is an insufficient solution. But the photos below show some people have taken the government up on its offer.
The government has also set up a hotline for those who see crocodiles, alligators, tigers, snakes or scorpions on the loose and need help wrangling them.
The New York Daily News reports that there have so far been no attacks on Thai citizens by roaming reptiles.
The flooding, however, has killed 340 people since July.
