ZELLA COMPTON: Looking afresh at our beautiful spot in the world

Have your say

Seems that it’s quite the time for strange animal happenings in Hampshire.

This week it was reported that an angler in the New Forest had shared his catch with a crocodile.

As he pulled the fish out of a local lake he realised that, on the other end of the fish, were crocodile’s jaws and a croc’s body.

The angler – who has admitted that he has been ridiculed by many – was reported as saying the croc was about two feet in length, that it dived back under the water and that it hasn’t been seen since.

Thank goodness for that. It’s suspected that the beast was an overgrown pet that had been dumped.

Please, if you need to move a pet onwards, call someone official to help you rehome it.
