GUIGUINTO, Bulacan, Philippines — Representatives from the Biodiversity Management Bureau (BMB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) started an investigation yesterday into the reported presence of crocodiles in a river in this town.

“We acknowledge that there are alleged sightings and have reported the matter to the DENR for immediate investigation and action,” Mayor Paula Agatha Cruz told The STAR.

She said a team from the BMB conducted an ocular inspection.

In a post on Facebook, officials of Barangay Malis warned the public against swimming or going to the river, citing the reported sightings of a crocodile.

Bulacan fifth district Rep. Abrocio Cruz said there have been discussions on how to catch the crocodile if found.

As of noon yesterday, environmental personnel have yet to find any crocodile even as residents claimed that there have been sightings.
