Wildlife officials capture crocodile suspected in Florida attack

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/30/2014 - 00:15
By Daniel Wallis MIAMI (Reuters) - Florida wildlife officials trapped a large crocodile on Friday believed to have attacked a pair of late-night swimmers in a first for the Sunshine State, a spokesman said. The 300-pound reptile, locally nicknamed Pancho, died soon after being caught, said Jorge Pino, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. A 23-year-old woman with him was also badly bitten in what wildlife officials said was Florida's first ever recorded case of a crocodile attacking a person. Although Florida is well known for incidents involving its many alligators, there are fewer than 2,000 American crocodiles, living mostly in the state's southeast near the Everglades.
