Patients and staff at Chiredzi General Hospital, in Zimbabwe’s Masvingo province got a scare when a crocodile was spotted at the health facility.
It is believed that the crocodile followed a waterway and found its way to the hospital’s male ward.
Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority spokesperson Tinashe Farawo confirmed the incident.
“Zimparks captured a crocodile which was found near Chiredzi General Hospital. The reptile was released into Chiredzi river,” he said.
Chiredzi, just like most parts of the country has been receiving heavy rains in the past few days.
The rains have caused flooding in some parts of the town, owing to poor drainage.
