Around 15,000 crocodiles have escaped from a farm in South Africa amid heavy rains and flooding.
A newspaper says the predators escaped from the Rakwena crocodile farm when the owners were forced to open gates to prevent a storm surge.
Thousands have been recaptured, but at least half remain on the loose, scattered far and wide.
One turned up on a school rugby field 120 kilometres away.
