Officials carry a crocodile to its farm in Vietnam's Khnh Ha province on November 11. The crocodile was recaptured after escaping a day before, when floods knocked down a fence at the state-owned Khnh Viet farm. It is unclear how many of the 5,000 crocodiles have escaped into a stream that passes through the farm to join a river flowing through several villages. Authorities have warned residents to be careful and launched a hunt for the escaped crocodiles. Vietnam raises crocodiles for their skin and meat.
