A specialists from England have come down to Sri Lanka to provide a training to net dangerous crocodiles in water bodies around the island, reports say.
Speaking, Wildlife minister Gamini Jayawickrmema Perera said that the crocodiles in the waters of the Diyawannawa around the Parliament premises would be caught after the training.
The team has begun training wildlife officials from yesterday (21) in the Angammedilla area and will continue in the Yala area and in the Nilwala river in Matara.
