rajatda , have there been cases where a croc has taken a fish that has been hooked , and the angler is reeling it in?

that would be one scary proposition!

Yes Santosh,

This brute was dangerously close to the guys sitting on the bank. Your description of this crock is true but if we go by the stories doing round in MSAA circle, this is Rani II. The Rani one was an even bigger reptile and it was very notorious as it had stopped all poaching in the Powai Lake. As per the stories, this unfortunate but a very unique reptile was ultimately killed by the poachers as it got entangled in a net specially designed to capture it and then it was dumped near Visarjan Ghat. The death of this Crock was well published but the cause was put to over pollution of the lake.

Here is a draft of a letter, we have forwarded to concerned authorities after the unfortunate accident where this crock attacked a poacher. Lets hope and pray, some one some where will take a not of ominous signs and take some appropriate action so as to avert any further mishap.


Crocodile attack (Reasons and Remedies)
We would like to bring in to your notice the unfortunate attack by a crocodile on a poacher who was trying to net the lake illegally. This attack happened while this poacher was trying to enter the lake on a truck tube, so as to lay his net. As he was near the shore, the crocodile attacked him once but did not peruse the attack, which saved the life of the poacher.

In view of the above we seek your intervention and we would also like to draw your kind attention to some of the fact, which are small but relevant to conserve the bio-system of this lake.

You are well aware that the top predator of the fragile eco-system of this lake is crocodile. While carrying out development works, paramount thoughts should be given to accommodate this top predator thus automatically protecting all other fauna and flora in the lower food chain, which are part of this eco system.

Below are some suggestion for immediate and long time action which can be initiated so as this type of accident did not happen in the future.
1. First of all, warning boards (Beware of crocodile) in Marathi, Hindi and English should be displayed around the lake.
2. While dredging the lake small island should be left where these crocodile can bask which is a daily routine of these reptiles.
3. On the bank, from the dam to the Renaissance, at least 30 meters of area should be fenced and made no mans zone. Same should be done from the Visarjan Ghat to the MSAA Club house. Artificial sand banks can be formed where these reptiles can bask and lay their eggs. (Kindly refer the attached map of Powai Lake)
4. More than dredging, de-silting can be done by opening the Valves of dam during the monsoons and racking the bottom of lake. Lot of sedimentation of this lake can be removed by just opening above mentioned valves. Neither the crocodile nor the fishes can sit or feed from the bottom due to this sedimentation.
5. Checking the Poacher from entering the lake on tubes for the theft of fishes.

We strongly recommend to you that taking these steps will not only stop these kind of accidents but also make the Powai Lake a very evolved and self sustaining eco-system.

Regards,

Ali.
