'Crocodile' spotted in Canada marsh was actually a truck tire

Another croc sighting called in this weekend in the marsh off of Hwy 17 & 104 Ave. It sure looks like one, but it's commercial truck tire!

June 13 (UPI) -- A menacing truck tire prompted several false reports of a crocodile floating in a marsh in Canada, police said.

Surrey RCMP in British Columbia shared a photo of the long, black piece of trash, which several drivers mistook for a crocodile, floating near the surface of the marsh off of a local highway.

"Another croc sighting called in this weekend in the marsh off of Hwy 17 & 104 Ave," police said. "It sure looks like one, but it's commercial truck tire!"

Surrey police Cpl. Scotty Schumann told the CBC crocodiles and alligators would certainly be a strange sight for the Pacific Northwest and while the idea of the floating, crocodile-shaped garbage is funny, it's become a distraction to drivers.

"It is kind of comical when you do look at it," he said. "It is causing a bit of traffic hazard on the highway."

The police department shared the public warning on its social media to discourage drivers from looking off of the highway to catch a glimpse of the false croc.

"We don't want anyone else to be stopping on the highway to take a look at this piece of debris and mistake it for a crocodile or an alligator," Schumann said.
