This sort of incident is not a rare occasion for the people of Vadodara as they have seen crocodiles being rescued every year, especially during the rainy season.

The most recent incident in which a crocodile had to be rescued was in September 2020. The crocodiles enter the residential areas when floods take place and the residents only notice them once the water recedes.

The Wildlife Rescue Trust is swift to provide aid to the people and make sure the crocodile is taken back to its habitat safely after a medical check up.
