Sources at the circus indicated that the regular crocodile that had performed the stunt for years had died just before the circus event.
Organizers of the circus did not wish to disappoint the crowds that had already turned up and therefore brought in another crocodile that proved to have been inexperienced in the stunt.
The unidentified trainer was taken to hospital and is reported to be recovering well from his wounds. Police are also reportedly conducting further investigations into the incident.
