Videos and pictures of a group of men brutally killing a crocodile have gone viral in Miri.

The incident is believed to have happened in Batu Satu, Miri.

Accorrding to Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) general manager Oswald Bracken, he has directed the Wildlife Action Team to investigate the case.

“We want to identify the exact location,” he said.

The video shows several men, a few of them wearing safety helmets and work boots, bashing the head of a crocodile entangled in a net.

According to The Star, Miri Malaysian Nature Society chairman Musa Musbah said the killing was unnecessary.

“The crocodile was already caught in the net. These men could have just notified the authorities like the police or forestry or fisheries to handle the crocodile.

“What they did was a case of cruelty and they should be hauled up and punished,” he said.
