Police in Devon, UK, were quick to respond when concerned locals spotted a crocodile in a popular dog-walking spot.

But the croc was a crock as it turned out to be plastic.

A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said:

Police were notified at around 9am this morning to reports of what looked like a crocodile in a swamp in Loddiswell, Kingsbridge.

“Officers attended the scene and it later expired that this was a plastic crocodile.”

The sighting was first reported on the Spotted Kingsbridge Facebook page with a local The resident saying: “Little crocodile seen at Woodleigh whilst walking the dogs.”

The department posted a tweet about the struggle to contain the beast and then a photo of a police dog with the crocodile.
