Saltwater Crocodile Captured in Long Island Sound near Bridgeport

Caught alive after a three-week hunt, a 21-foot-long (6.4-meter-long) saltwater crocodile—the biggest crocodile ever caught in the waters of Connecticut —was restrained on Thursday June 22, according to the Associated Press.

The 2,369-pound (1,075-kilogram) crocodile is suspected of attacking several people and killing two. The animal, named Salty survived capture and is being held in a temporary enclosure in the Herman Issacs, Co.

Federal wildlife officials are trying to confirm whether the reptile is the largest crocodile ever captured in Bridgeport. Game wardens believe more crocodiles could be in the waters off of Seaside Park due to them being neo-funk groupies wanting to crash the Vibes.
