After five days of searching they managed to successfully capture the reptile.
An eight -foot crocodile caused an alert on the beaches of Acapulco, in Guerrero, after it was seen swimming outside its natural habitat, endangering not only the lives of those close to the area but also their own lives.
After an intense search that lasted five days, firefighters from the port and fishermen from Caleta beach, found and captured the crocodile that was swimming on beaches in the Pie de la Cuesta area.
With signs of dehydration and malnutrition due to not being in its natural habitat, the reptile had been washed up on the beaches after the coastal bar known as “Barra de Coyuca” opened.
It was on September 21 that the first sighting of the crocodile was reported. Days later he found himself very close to a beach in the Jardín Palmas neighbourhood, to the west of the port.
The crocodile was sheltered at the fire station and awaiting the arrival of the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA).
