    I just got this email, What do you think.

    This crocodile was found in New Orleans swimming down the street. 21 FT long, 4,500 lbs, around 80 years old minimum. Specialists said that he was looking to eat humans because he was too old to catch animals. This crocodile was killed by the army last Sunday at 3:00 pm, currently he is in the freezer at the Azur hotel. The contents of it's stomach will be analyzed this Friday at 2:30pm.

    I think wherever that gator was...it was a shame it was killed. Geez. I certainly wouldnt want it to hurt anyone but what a magnificent animal...and so old. Should have been left to live out its life naturally.

    sounds like some privates were looking for a target to practace on

    But really even if it does have human contents, you cant balme a animal for looking for food. probably serching for carrion, whatever was floating by. carrion is carrion to a croc.
    that makes no logic

    I tend to agree with Finch, but it also sounds like the beginning of another stupid urban legend to me. A shame, really. I somehow doubt that it was 'looking to eat humans,' seeing as we're not really the easiest quarry out there.

    Hate to tell you this guy's..

    "The pictures are real, but the caption is false. These photos were not taken in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. They were taken in 2003 and document the capture of a 16-foot crocodile in Pointe-Noire, Republic of the Congo. The incident was covered in the July 17, 2003 edition of La Semaine Africaine."

    That statement doesn't even make sense.

    So then how has it lived so long without eating tons of humans?

    lol yeah talk about a chain letter.

    More info

    "Even the original exaggerated the facts in this story. According to media accounts, the Pointe Noire Crocodile was a giant, but not quite the behemoth portrayed in the chain letter. The real croc was around 50 years old, about 16 feet long and weighed a "mere" 1,874 pounds (that's still huge, but a far cry from two and a quarter tons). Also,the croc was not stored in a hotel's freezer until it could be dissected. Rather, the mayor of Pointe Noire, ordered the animal be sent to a taxidermist and preserved for its tourist value (the residents would have preferred to have eaten him). Break this Chain."
