Today the national news informed us of crocodiles being used as domestic watchdogs.
Two big ones were stumbled upon, in a home in Amsterdam, when the police raided it looking for drugs. It turned out, they were ‘protecting’ a large sum of (criminal) money. After the initial arrest of the animals, they have now been returned to the house, as the owner has a permit. (??? for keeping man-sized reptiles at home? In Amsterdam?)
According to the newspaper Parool there’s an increase of exotic animals protecting drugs. Also a large iguana and a python have been found by the police under similar circumstances. A caretaker of the reptile shelter explains maybe why: “While the police is busy trying to find out what kind of animal it is, the criminal wins time to get rid of his administration”. (They know dogs already)
A dazzle technique by definition.
