Mijas Council wants to stuff rogue crocodile

The lifeless body of the Nile crocodile which has been haunting the lagoons near Mijas for the past couple of months was found on Monday, and now the Council is seeking permission to have it stuffed so it can go on display as a tourist attraction.

SEPRONA had been searching the lagoons around Mijas for the past couple of months after various sightings and signs on the ground indicating the presence of a crocodile. The croc, a 15 year old male, measured 2.15 metres in length. It has been taken away for a necropsy to determine the cause of death.

The Guardia Civil is continuing iys investigation to try and ascertain who released the beast into the pond at Majada Vieja, the crocodile not having been microchipped.

Meanwhile, the Council would like to use the crocodile for tourism purposes and has already begun contacting taxidermists.
