An Indonesian woman has been mauled to death by a pet crocodile in Sulawesi after she fell into its enclosure.
Deasy Tuwo, 44, had reportedly been feeding the crocodile at the pearl farm where she worked, and where the animal was being kept illegally.
The 700kg crocodile, named Merry, is thought to have bitten off her arm and most of her abdomen.
The reptile has been relocated to a conservation site while authorities look for its owner.
