A resident in Liaoning province made headlines recently when he was photographed taking his pet crocodile for a midday stroll without a leash and without a fuck. We’d expect no less from a man dressed in camouflage pants.
The croc owner was spotted in Benxi city on August 31 allowing his reptile to crawl freely on the ground as its mouth was bound with tape.
Images posted by Weibo user diyishijian showed crowds of people gathering around to gawk at the one-meter-long creature while the owner flipped it on its back, with some even getting close enough to pet the thing like a small dog.
According to the post, the unidentified man has raised the crocodile for two years and occasionally likes to take it out in public.
Keeping a crocodile as a pet is illegal without a proper license under Chinese law.
Last year, an animal feeder at a Henan zoo likewise terrified passersby when he decided to take one of its tigers for a walk in the middle of a public park.
