Crocodile comes ashore on Hollywood beach. The 8-foot, 145 pound prehistoric monster showed up Monday, November 20th to the surprise of local beach goers and guests of the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort. It drew television crews, crowds and wildlife officers.
A Hollywood police officer approached people taking photos and told them to back up.
“Can you run 18 miles an hour?” the officer asked one woman.
“No,” she said.
“He can,” the officer said. Everyone backed up.
It was finally caught late in the day by officials and released elsewhere.
But, seriously, it wasn’t enough to have jellyfish, stingrays and sharks to watch out for…now we need to worry about crocodiles now too?
