Guess who's staying for dinner at the Zoo?
A few visitors from Milwaukee: three crocodiles and a 175-lb. turtle.
An 8-foot long African slender-snouted crocodile, a 5½-ft. West African dwarf crocodile and another 5½-ft crocodile of undeterminable species, came to the Zoo late yesterday and a 175-lb. alligator snapping turtle is scheduled to arrive tomorrow.
The Zoo is providing temporary housing and care for the animals,which were taken into custody as part of an investigation by Milwaukee Police from a home and a warehouse in South Milwaukee last Thursday. Racine Zoo officials were called to assist in the identification and collection of approximately 250 snakes, crocodiles, turtles, alligators, and caimans.
