A monster crocodile thought to be responsible for killing a fisherman has been captured alive in the Philippines.

The Sun reports that villagers have been hunting for the 21-foot croc for three weeks, and finally on Saturday night they had success. It took 100 people to pull the one-ton crocodile out of a creek and onto a crane, which lifted it onto a truck.

It turns out President Trump's budget has $2 trillion error in it:

"We were nervous but it's our duty to deal with a threat to the villagers," said Bunawan Mayor Cox Elorde. "When I finally stood before it, I couldn't believe my eyes."

It is believed that the crocodile killed the fisherman who went missing in July.
