A crocodile has killed a Protestant pastor while he was baptising people at a lake in Ethiopia.

In addition, according to the Telegraph, Lake Abaya crocodiles have a reputation of aggression towards humans because of a dearth of fish caused by overfishing.

It was reported the clergyman suffered bites to his legs, back and hands.

Some 80 people set to be baptized at a lake in southern Ethiopia instead watched as their pastor was killed by a crocodile Sunday.

"He baptised the first person and he passed on to another one", a resident of the nearby town of Arba Minch told the BBC's Amharic language service.

The lake, which runs about 37 miles long, reportedly has a large infestation of crocodiles.

Fishermen threw out their nets to block the crocodile from taking Mr Docho into deeper water, but by the time they extricated him he was already dead.

An Ethiopian online publication borkena.com said that members of his church watched helplessly in tears as the crocodile devoured him.

The lake's reddish-brown waters make it hard to spot the animals until they surface, the Telegraph said.

The Crocodile Specialist Group estimates that Nile crocodiles are responsible for more than 300 attacks in Africa each year.
