Published on : Wednesday, August 21, 2019

As a way of dealing with increasing human-wildlife conflict, Tanzania will sell 10 percent of its crocodile population, the tourism minister said.

 

“There are many cases of people being attacked by the crocodiles and hippos in several areas besides destruction of crops and other properties, but we have come up with a plan, which we believe will reduce such incidents,” said Hamisi Kigwangwala as quoted by the Citizen newspaper.

 

He said that the government will announce the plan to sell the animals this week.

 

The minister also said special permits will be used to allow people to hunt and skin the animals before they are sold in local and international markets.
