A man’s half-eaten body has been found after he was attacked by crocodiles at a breeding farm in the Philippines, police say.

Sorbelo Sajona, age 57, was identified by authorities, adding that he was an unemployed man and his body was discovered in a pond by workers at a nearby facility on the southern island of Mindanao.

He was last seen drunk the previous day at a local cemetery, visiting the graves of his relatives like many other residents on All Saints’ Day, authorities added.

While there was no sign of any other injuries, police have yet to officially conclude he was killed by crocodile bites, police officer Lowell Neniza said.

“There was no evidence of foul play, but the farm security guards told us they were clueless on how he got into the pond,” he said.

The farm, in the rural town of Santo Tomas, is run by JK Mercado and Sons Agricultural Enterprises.

Company spokesman Lerio Gaceta said there were 2,800 saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to 4.3 metres (14ft) long, at the facility.

It exports the creatures’ skins and sells the meat to local restaurants offering exotic cuisine.
