Crocodile visits MP's office
A crocodile last week attempted to place a daylight courtesy call on its member of parliament (MP), but found the door to the offices closed.
The croc turned up at the Port Morant office of Dr Fenton Ferguson, the MP for Eastern St Thomas. Crocs are infamous for having many large, sharp teeth and Ferguson is a dentist.
Desmond Gayle, who posted an image of the croc at the door to Ferguson's office on Facebook, commented that "this crocodile seems very upset with something".
He opined that the reptile may have gone to voice its disgust about the state of the parish.
"It looks very angry, miserable and crass. Maybe it wanted to see the DOC".
Residents of St Thomas have long complained about the state of their roads and the recent rains have made the condition worse, especially in Golden Grove, Port Morant and other eastern sections of the parish.
Sharon Patterson, commenting on the picture of the croc at the doc's office, said "yes, di way di road dem bad, di crocodile tink seh a riva course it deh and him kip seeing vehicle inna him way suh him a guh to Mr. Ferguson fi tell him fi fix di road dem suh him nuh mistake it fi riva course."
Persistent rains have been affecting southern parishes, which could have contributed to the floorings which caused the crocodile to be displaced from its habitat.
