A huge crocodile made a surprise visit to Kogilban village near the resort town of Dandeli in Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, on July 1, scaring the wits out of the villagers.

The reptile had come out of the nearby Kali river, which meanders through the Kali Tiger Reserve (earlier known as Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve), in the district.

Fortunately, it did not attack anyone, nor the humans following it at a distance or those taking videos of it. The crocodile walked at a leisurely pace and did not even bother the stray dogs that came near it.

The villagers contacted the forest department officials who rushed to the spot and captured it, before releasing it unharmed into the river.
According to wildlife officials, Kali river has a sizable population of crocodiles. Keeping that in mind, a crocodile park has been set up in Dandeli.
