"I explained to him that I was fighting a beast that had snatched and killed my wife and unborn baby. I really wanted my revenge, and asked the blacksmith to make me a spear that could kill the crocodile dead.
"The Blacksmith asked me for £3.20 ($5) and made the spear for me," he says. It was a significant amount of money for Batambuze, but he was determined to kill the animal that had snatched his future.
"I put the spear into the crocodile's side, and while my friends were helping to throw stones at the beast's back, it tried getting its mouth up to attack me again.
"It turned violent, and then there was so much fear in the place. But I was so determined, and I wasn't afraid of dying. I just wanted it dead, so I put the spear in its side and I pulled the rope. That got the crocodile into trouble."
It took an hour and a half for Batambuze and his friends, fighting and retreating, exchanging attacks with the enraged animal, before the crocodile was finally dead.
Exhausted, they made their way back to their village. "There was so much shock. What really surprised everybody was how big the beast was. It wasn't an ordinary crocodile. It was so big. And people called me and my friends heroes," he says.
The crocodile was just being a crocodile.

And the man is just being a man , the crocodile killed his family he killed the crocodile.
This story serves to remind me how far removed from the realities of life we in the west really are.
I would love to see what you consider to be "Reality", not experience it mind you, just see it for awhile
Being eaten by a Crocodile can happen but so can being hit on the head by a meteor, doesnt mean Id call it "reality"

At the end of the day, the crocodile was doing what crocodiles do.
