The enormous beast, over 18ft long and weighing approximately a tonne, was caught after worried locals demanded wildlife officials hunt it down.
Its latest victim is believed to be father-of-two Bosco Nyansi, a local fisherman whose tattered clothing was discovered floating on the water.
Game wardens trapped it using a large chunk of meat on a hook following a four-day search. They trapped it in a corner before binding it up with rope.
Hundreds of people from nearby Kakira village gathered to watch as it was bundled onto the back of truck. It will now be transferred to the Murchison Falls national park.
It is one of the largest crocodiles in captivity weighing only 47kg less than the current record holder – a 21ft saltwater crocodile captured in the Philippines.
It’s not unusual for African crocodiles to kill huge prey such as young hippopotamuses, giraffes, lions and buffalo.
