Nearly 11,000 crocodiles are starving to death on a Honduras farm after the bank accounts of the wealthy owners have been frozen. The Rosenthal family, a powerful clan in Honduras, is being investigated for their alleged involvement in laundering money and drug trafficking. The US-imposed asset freeze means that American businesses are prohibited from doing business with the family and any of its companies—which include banks, media, real estate, tourism, livestock, and agriculture. The crocodile farm (named Cocodrilos Continental) exports the animals’ meat and skin to the United States, while also “preserving the species,” according to its website. The Rosenthal family spends roughly $1 million per year on the farm to pay its employees and feed the animals. But with the bank accounts being frozen, that money is off-limits. “The crocodiles . . . are dying of hunger, and we are too because we haven’t been paid the last two weeks,” said one worker.
