Karachi police is on high alert after seven crocodiles escaped from a farmhouse in Steel Town of Karachi. Five crocodiles have been captured while the hunt for the remaining two is ongoing.

As per reports, the crocodiles escaped from the farm after a wall of the farmhouse premises collapsed in the morning due to heavy rain. The farmhouse management called the police and other relevant government departments for help to find the escaped crocodiles.

While the police have managed to nab five crocs, two are still on the loose because of standing rainwater at various places in the area.


No news has been received about the crocodiles harming any person.

Keeping wild, exotic animals as pets in privately-owned farmhouses is a growing trend in Karachi. However, many owners have not gotten a permit from the concerned government departments to keep the animal.
