Massive man-eating crocodile captured in Uganda

JINJA, UGANDA (WWBT) -

Wildlife officials reportedly captured a massive crocodile blamed for four deaths in Uganda earlier this month.

The four-day hunt in Jinja led to the capture of the 80-year-old killer croc, according to Ugandan newspaper New Vision. It weighs just 100 pounds less than the world's heaviest crocodile, Lolong, which died last year. 
 
The officials used meat on a hook to trap the crocodile, which will now be transferred to Murchison Falls National Park.
