Large crocodile relocated after wandering urban streets

Ciudad Madero, Tamaulipas — A large adult crocodile was captured and safely released into the wild in Ciudad Madero after he was seen wandering an urban street.

The large crocodile, which measured just over 2.5 meters in length, was secured by environmental officers who were helped by the Tamaulipas fire department and civil protection to round up the wandering reptile.

Officers of la Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente were successful in subduing the swamp crocodile for its containment. After a vet gave the crocodile a clean bill of health, he was relocated and released back into the wild.
