Over 300 crocodiles in India are being moved because they are too near a tourist sight. Officials say the crocs could be a danger to tourists near the Statue of Unity. The statue opened last October. It is the tallest statue in the world. Officials want the crocodiles moved so seaplanes can land on a reservoir, where the crocs live. They could attack tourists. Some of the crocs are over three meters long. They are going to a new home in another part of India.

Animal lovers are angry. One said: "The government is...putting their lives at risk. [It] hasn't thought...where it will release the...crocodiles safely." An environmental magazine editor said the idea to move the crocodiles was crazy. An Indian journalist and activist said moving the crocodiles could break India's wildlife protection laws. Another official said they had to move the crocodiles for "security reasons".
