Croc death in­ves­ti­gated

Bay of Plenty Times - - WORLD -

Mex­i­can en­vi­ron­men­tal au­thor­i­ties have launched a crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the death of a crocodile. The young croc was hung from a tree with a note that read: “We are go­ing to con­tinue killing these dis­gust­ing an­i­mals un­less they are brought un­der con­trol.” The rep­tile’s car­cass was found in the Pa­cific coast re­sort city of Puerto Val­larta on Wed­nes­day. Crocs are a pro­tected species in Mex­ico and killing them is a crime.
