Fuerza Pública officers encountered another crocodile in San Jerónimo de Orotina. This is at least the third misplaced croc this season.
The young croc appeared to have become used to sunning itself on a bridge in the community. Officials were worried because the sunbathing location is on a route traversed by students each day.
Police grabbed the critter Tuesday and took it to he Río Tárcoles, which is more or less crocodile central.
Other captures of much bigger critters were in Jacó and Quepos. This is the season mature crocs go courting.
