India Relocates Crocodiles For World’s Tallest Statue


Indian start relocating about 300 crocodiles from a reservoir next to the world's tallest statue to allow a seaplane service for visitors.

The animals, some around 3m (9ft) long, are being lured into metal cages and sent elsewhere in the western state of Gujarat.
But conservationists have criticized the plan.

The 182m statue of independence hero Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was inaugurated last October.

The bronze-clad statue sculpture, located some 200km (125 miles) from the state's main city of Ahmedabad, has become a popular attraction.

So far about a dozen crocodiles have been removed and transported on the back of pick-up trucks.
