(FEDERALJACK)   Wildlife authorities in the Philippines captured a 21-foot long saltwater crocodile.  Hunters spent three weeks trying to capture the crocodile. The crocodile destroyed several traps, but a team of 30 men finally managed to capture it by baiting it with meat.  CNN reports that the huge crocodile is suspected in the deaths of a fisherman and a girl.  A photo here shows the local Mayor posing with villagers and the crocodile.
