New York – X-ray reveals details:

A crocodile was found hungry and weak in a park in New York’s Prospect Park on Sunday, several media reported.

The alligator is too sick to feed himself, and is now being tube-fed at the Bronx Zoo where he is being cared for, writes the New York Times.

An X-ray of the crocodile showed that it had swallowed a ten centimeter wide bathtub.

Seriously ill

According to the New York Times, the alligator was too sick to unclog the tub.

– We will continue to provide support and attention. What we do next depends on how he responds to the treatment, the zoo wrote in a statement.

The New York parks department found the alligator Sunday morning, and enlisted the help of police to drag it out of a lake in the park.

It’s not clear whether the alligator swallowed the tub plug in the lake, or if it was kept in the tub.

Sixth time

The New York Times wrote that this is the sixth time a crocodile has been rescued in New York after being abandoned there.

Crocodile is very hungry. It weighs seven kilograms – just half the weight of a healthy alligator of this size. The police are currently investigating the incident.

– This is a tragic situation, and a reminder that wild animals do not make good pets, the zoo wrote in a statement, according to the New York Times.
