Reward Offered to Anyone Who Can Get Tire Off This 13-Foot Crocodile's Neck

The 13-foot crocodile has been swimming around Indonesia with a tire around its neck for 4 years and now officials are offering a reward to anyone who can safely get it off.

According to Indonesia’s state-run Antara news agency, the crocodile has had the tire around its neck since at least 2016, though it’s unknown how it got there.

Local conservation authorities have tried – for several years – to find a way to untangle the crocodile but all efforts proved abortive.

The agency offered few details on the reward, or how outsiders might pull off the task.

But its chief warned that he was not calling on amateurs to hunt down the reptile, but rather addressing people with a background in wildlife rescue and a thirst for conservation.

“We’re asking the general public not to get close to the crocodile or disturb its habitat,” said Hasmuni Hasmar, head of the Central Sulawesi Natural Resources Conservation Agency.
