Saving Crocodiles with the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) and the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES) in Belize
As a part of the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) we got the call to go help in securing and ensuring the safety of an 8.5 foot crocodile that found its way into Belize City by way of underground canals and culverts.
Between Evan Sims from the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES), Gordon Kirkwood, Graeme Kirkwood and Will Moreno from the Wildlife Emergency Response Team (WERT) they managed to immobilize this magnificent yet powerful creature for the safety of the public and the safety of the crocodile. We are happy to report that the crocodile has been relocated to the Crodile Sanctuary for further evaluation and future release.

*****For the Record: It is illegal hold captive, torture or kill such an animal for any reason in Belize.*****
