The mystery of a possible caiman crocodile in a Swiss lake is been solved by a fisherman – possibly.

Over the past few weeks locals around Lake Halwil in canton Aargau have been hearing stories of a crocodile swimming in the lake.

But a local fisherman says he believes he knows what people have spotted after he caught a large catfish measuring over a meter long.

He says when he cut the fish open, he found it had swallowed a grebe – a diving water bird. The first time he’d ever seen that.

Police however say the reports of a caiman crocodile in the water have not been completely dismissed. They can’t rule out someone dumping an exotic pet and so their investigations are continuing.
