Police capture young crocodile

Police caught a crocodile in the town of Michelstadt in the western German state of Hesse on Sunday. Two teenage girls discovered the 50-centimeter (20 inch) long creature in a sports field earlier in the day. The police managed to catch the crocodile using an umbrella, a laundry basket and a potato sack. It found a new home in a zoo the same evening.
