Snap! Selfie-seeking tourist bitten by Thai croc

03rd January 2017, 12:00 Hrs

A French tourist was bitten by a crocodile inside a Thai national park as she tried to get close to the fearsome animal to take a selfie. The incident took place in Khao Yai, a popular national park filled with dense jungle hiking trails and waterfalls three hours north of Bangkok. \"She wanted to take selfie with the crocodile who was lying down near a stream,\" a park official stated. \"It was startled and bit her on her on the leg.\"

The official said two crocodiles had made their home on that particular section of the park for years with warning signs laid out. Local media posted pictures of park rangers dressed in camouflage carrying the 47-year-old victim strapped to a stretcher, a thick bandage wrapped around her knee. Another shot showed a ranger pointing to a pool of blood close to a sign saying in Thai and English \"Danger Crocodile No Swimming\". In Thailand there are just a handful of wild populations left in central and western national parks.
