BEIRUT: Civil Defense and animal rights groups hope a cage with chicken as bait will work to safely capture a crocodile recently discovered in Beirut River, after previous attempts failed to trap the reptile.

Although known to locals in the area, the crocodile measuring over 1 meter came to public’s attention last week.

Teams have since Monday been trying to capture the creature for later relocation.

The crocodile retreated in fear after authorities tried to catch it with a net Monday night. That failure prompted a new means of capturing the reptile: a set of cages along the banks of the river with chicken for bait.

Animals Lebanon plan to send the crocodile to an undetermined sanctuary once it is captured.
