Motorcyclist tangles with stray croc

Police said a motorcyclist was surprised by a crocodile on the highway and struck the creature early Thursday.

Police managed to keep the animal’s mouth closed while they took it to experts for evaluation and perhaps relocation. The croc did not seem to be hurt badly, they said.

The croc seems to have lived in a nearby lake in Turrúcares and at the time of the 1 a.m. mishap the meter and a half animal was on the prowl, perhaps for food.
