News Africa : Crocodile eats Ugandan woman and her five months baby
An unfortunate episode played out on Monday in north-western Uganda when a ferocious crocodile attacked and ate a woman and her 5-month-old baby who had gone to a lake to fetch water.
Officials said, “This is a situation where species often have to fight over natural resources – land and water – and many rural families don’t have access to running water at home.
“We are advising people to avoid areas where these man-eater crocodiles are,” Uganda Wildlife Authority, UWA, Spokesman, Bashir Hangi, said.
“Crocodiles stay in fish-breeding areas, but when the fish get depleted, they come on the surface and attack and eat humans,” Hangi said.

Daily Monitor reports that other villagers on the lake shore tried and failed to save the woman and her baby.
The newspaper reports that residents tried to save the woman and baby but their efforts were fruitless as the crocodile had already disappeared with her body in the water.

A 700-kilogramme crocodile which had killed and eaten five people over the past five years was captured on Saturday on the eastern shores of Lake Victoria, another UWA official, Peter Ogwang, said.
“The attacks by these animals are now increasing. Right now, I am in Ngoma [central Uganda] tracking down a crocodile which has eaten 32 goats in the village,” he said.

What an unfortunate incident, the govt should rather work on providing water for the residents. Solve the problems rather than giving consolation messages.
