Belize: Police ‘trained to handle crocodiles’

Police in Belize are being trained to handle crocodiles, it’s reported.

Apparently, the American crocodiles on the country’s largest island, Ambergris Caye, are losing their natural instinct to stay away from man because people have been feeding them. This leads them into new territory where they’re more likely to come into contact with humans and to attack if they feel threatened, reports the San Pedro Sun.
