Crocodile Infestation Gives Kids a Day Off From School

Everyone loves a good snow day, but that’s nothing compared to a vicious onslaught of man-eating crocodiles.

Earlier this week in southern Vietnam, kids were given a “crocodile day” by the Kim Dong school after dozens of these furious reptiles escaped a local farm and began crawling around the highly populated province of Ca Mau searching for their next meal.

“The wall of the crocodile farm collapsed because of rain erosion, letting them escape,” said Le Van Hai, head of the Forest Ranger Department.

According to Hai, nearly 60 crocodiles were wrangled up on Monday and put back on the farm. However, he admits that no one is certain just how many animals are still on the loose because it is unclear just how many actually escaped from the farm.

The last count on the farm before the escape was somewhere around 600 crocodiles.
