Crocodile Dundee on the veld
A MASSIVE operation to round up thousands of escaped crocodiles has intensified in flood-soaked South Africa.

''A thousand have already been caught,'' a police spokesman, Hangwani Mulaudzi, said on Friday.

South African media said about half of the 15,000 reptiles at the Rakwena Crocodile Farm in the far north of the country had escaped last Sunday amid torrential downpours.

The owners were forced to open the gates to prevent a storm surge.

The animals have scattered far and wide making the recapture operation more tricky. One croc was found next to a mall in the town of Musina, 120 kilometres away.
