Don’t worry about crocodiles in Lake Geneva. A picture circulating on social media shows firefighters lifting out a crocodile from the water.

Many were worried someone had dumped a pet into the lake.

But it was plastic. The incident was last week – but the pictures are being shared now.

Some are taking it seriously, which the fire service did when the first calls came in. A team armed with capture rods raced to the Reposoir beach. 

The fake reptile didn’t fight back and was only three meters from the shore. 

It’s now in the trash.
