  KAMPALA, February 3 (Xinhuanet) -- An estimated 41 people have been reportedly killed and eaten by crocodiles along the shores of Lake Victoria in Uganda's Bugiri district, the New Vision newspaper reported on Sunday.

  The casualties were recorded between September 2001 and January this year, Mary Owor, Bugiri resident district commissioner, was quoted as saying.

  She said most of the victims were youth who had gone to fetch water along the isolated shores of the lake in Mutumba sub-county.

  Owor asked the Ministry of Tourism, Trade and Industry to provide them with either a game ranger or licensed officer to shoot the destructive creatures.

  "We appeal to the Uganda Wildlife Authority to help save life.

Human beings have a right to life," she said.  Enditem
