Deadly Nile Crocodile Captured In Florida Everglades

MIAMI – A deadly young Nile crocodile has been captured alive in Everglades National Park.

Wildlife officials say the crocodile they caught Sunday has eluded them for nearly two years.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino says they believe the 5 1/2-foot croc may have escaped from a facility in Miami-Dade County.

Two other missing crocs were captured in 2009 and 2012. He says they're looking at DNA to confirm their suspicions.
