    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The National System of Conservation Areas (Sinac) confirmed that on September 5, during a night operation, an alligator that was in the northern lagoon of Peace Park in San José was captured. The animal has been seen since sporadically last June.

    The hunt involved the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) and crocodile expert, Juan Bolaños. According to the experts, finding and capturing the animal was complicated due to the size of the animal, which was 64 centimeters.

    “The cited specimen measured 64 cm from the tip of the nose to the tip of its tail and with its small size, it would probably not try to attack people unprovoked,” said Ronald Mora, Program Management Officer of Wildlife Conservation.

    On Monday, the animal was transferred to the Sarapiqui area for release. This is because these species are characteristic of this place. Sinac reported that this is the fourth animal caught in this lake.

    “This is the fourth alligator, so it is necessary to draw attention to the population to take greater responsibility not to release any wild animals in random places and they should coordinate with Sinac staff nationwide so that they in turn can be relocated to suitable sites under the conditions of animal, species, health and their natural range,” said Bolanos.
