Stuffed crocodile found a fair way from home
An appeal for information has gone out after a stuffed crocodile was discovered next to a golf course in South Lanarkshire.
A number of concerned passers-by believed they had spotted a reptile in the water at Carnwath Golf Course.
Scottish SPCA Inspector Heather Lawson collected the four-and-a-half-foot crocodile and took it to the National Museum of Scotland to have it identified.
“I first thought it was a prank when I got a call reporting a sightings of a crocodile but when I investigated I found it was real,” she said.
“The crocodile was dead and oddly had tape wrapped around its head. It seems someone has attempted to stuff the crocodile as it had no insides and there was straw stuck in its legs.
“ We now know it was a West African Dwarf Crocodile and it’s a complete mystery how it got there.
“These are protected animals and anyone who owns one in this country would need to have a Dangerous Wild Animal licence.”
Should’ve gone to…
A vet accidentally shot a tranquiliser dart at a zoo employee dressed as a gorilla after mistaking him for a real ape.
The 35-year-old zoo employee was shot at Loro Parque Zoo on the Spanish island of Tenerife, where staff were taking part in a drill designed to ensure they had an emergency plan in place in case one of the gorillas escaped its enclosure.
But the vet had not been informed of the training exercise and, fearing that there was a gorilla on the loose, he sprang into action.
The vet fired the shot – designed for a 400lb gorilla – at the man and hit him in the leg. According to La Opinión de Tenerife newspaper, the man suffered a severe reaction to the shot and was taken to the University Hospital of the Canary Islands, where he remained in a serious condition.
