Cats and dogs stolen from owners to be fed to huge caiman lizard

Sadistic villagers in the small town of Puerto Berrio, Antioquia in north-western Colombia have allegedly been stealing cats and dogs from their owners and feeding a large caiman lizard the pets for entertainment.  An eyewitness filmed the disturbing act as spectators, including the sounds of young children, cheered and laughed as the caiman killed a cat in two powerful bites before submerging back into the lake.

According to the Daily Mail, one woman applauded and screamed with excitement as the reptile seized the defenseless cat.In case you have never heard of a caiman lizard, these are a species of lizards found in the northern  sections of South America. These rarely seen inhabitants of wooded riverbanks, with their crocodile type skins, can grow from two to seven feet. In the past, these lizards were hunted for their skins. Although they do resemble crocodiles, they have pointier heads and shorter tails.

Animal activist Nancy Monterrosa said pet owners have been complaining their dogs and cats are being used as prey for the reptile which has made its home in the lake in an area known as Cano Grecia.

“The video was sent to me by a person who is very sad as he lost his pet and suspects that it was food for the caiman living there,”Nancy stated. “There are several caiman in the area. The situation is out of control and nobody is doing anything about it. People told me that fishermen have offered to catch them and to take them away to a better place but we do not know what the authorities have said.”

It is hoped authorities will soon make a decision as to  move the reptiles to the Chiqueros area which is a natural habitat for the reptiles. For now people are being warned not to feed them because that could cause them to leave the lake and possibly harm humans.

    If this is considered ‘entertainment’ Columbia is proving itself to be one vile backwoods hell hole of a country. Maybe they should take these so called ‘humans’ and throw them to the caimans – THAT I would cheer for!
