There Be Dragons

A Komodo dragon has been terrorising Lae city in Papua New Guinea and has sparked a massive police hunt.

The giant reptile has been putting fear into villagers and causing damage to their gardens with its fire breathing .

Police Commander Inspector Ben Neneo said police were working with Morobe Province administrators in a joint effort to find the creature.

"They want to capture it but if needs be they will kill it and probably eat it ," he said.

Dr Gae Gowae from PNG's Department of Environment said under the law they are not supposed to be here and the dragon may face a harsh prison sentence if caught.

Old Knudsen Dragon slayer said: " I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad dragon . Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing."

Old Knudsen is hoping to buy a bigger boat with the money.
