Crocodile named ‘Osama Bin Laden’ terrorised small Ugandan village

    A Nile crocodile that was named ‘Osama Bin Laden’ terrorised adults and children for years in a small Ugandan village.

    The reptile, believed to be over 75-years-old, reportedly killed 80 people in Luganga between 1991 and 2005, wiping out 1/10th of the population of the small village.

    The 16-foot creature used to attack children who used to collect water from a lake. Locals say it swam underneath boats and even capsized them, according to a Daily Star report.

    There was a time, the reptile used to jump onto fishermen’s wooden vessels to attack passengers.

    A man named Paul Kyewalyanga once came face to face with the creature. Unfortunately, his brother was unable to survive the encounter.

    “Osama just emerged from the water vertically and flopped into the boat. The back of the boat where I was sitting was submerged,” told The Sydney Morning Herald.

    “Peter was clutching the side screaming. They fought for about five minutes until I heard a tearing sound,” said Paul.

    The crocodile had latched onto Peter’s leg and started pulling him towards the lake. Paul said he tried to get help but it was all in vain.

    The animal was captured in 2005 with the efforts of wildlife officials and 50 men from a local area. It only happened after villagers had put out a joint SOS.

    Although most of the villagers wanted the animal to be put down, authorities kept him safe and eventually transferred him to the owners of Ugandan Crocs for their breeding programme.
