People have seen what they think is likely to be a crocodile in Hamilton Pond, Ontario, Canada. Bry Loyst, curator of the nearby Indian River Reptile Zoo, thinks it is a former pet that was released because it grew too large to keep.

Apparently, reptile dumping is becoming a frequent problem in Western Canada. Well, if this turns out to be something other than a crocodile or alligator, then we’ve got a possible cryptozoology find, and if not, then we’ve got confirmation of the old urban legend about people releasing pet crocs into the wild. It’s a weird win either way. Just not for the animal itself.
