This is not the 1st time that 1 irresponsible person, who chose to have an exotic pet and then came to a point that they could no longer handle it, has caused this much inconvenience to so many. Between the loss of recreational use due to the closure of the ponds and the costs the city will incur to rectify the situation I would hope there are charges filed if the person responsible can be located.

Sounds like what happen to me when I was 10 yrs old in Washington Park lake in Denver. Fishing in the south lake A four or five foot alligator snapping turtle came out of the water scared the crap out of me!

you know I use to see all kinds of strange things but that was back in the 60's! After using a sugar cube in my coffee! My friend made me pay him $25.00 for each one. I told him I thought that was a little steep for a sugar cube. He said something about a hit? But one day the police came and took him away they said something about he was making Acid!? But every since he left I quit seeing strange things every where after have my coffee with him!

Well if anyone can catch this critter it's the Alligator Farm In Alamosa, and what is awesome is they take care of the animal and people from all over can come and see this new addition. They are wonderful people and if anyone ever goes to the San Luis Valley drop by they have tours.

Aye mate, now that there's an opening in the theater of croc hunting, lets have a croc-off! First one to catch this ferocious man eater wins a pair of croc boots!
It'll be like in the movie "Jaws" when the whole town goes after him.
Yeah Baby!

So that is where it came from it was stolen by Illegals coming north! They were headed to Greeley. But found out ICE was there and let it go in Loveland!(I have to tie the illegals in some how!)

It is a simple tourist attraction ploy. Note all hearsay, nothing concrete. Please media, publish real substantiated NEWS.
