Alarming news from the island of Contadora, getaway for the rich and famous: the beaches are not safe. There is a giant crocodile on the loose and attempts to capture the animal have so far been fruitless. We were forwarded email correspondence on the matter, which started with a message from Marcos Cigarruista, who was reportedly appointed by vice-president Samuel Lewis Navarro as "regidor" (one step below the so-called "corregidor"), lives in the Contadora hotel and is also the head of the ARPUIC, the island's residents association. "Without the intention to alarm anyone, but to prevent any accidents, it is advised that on the beaches of the island roams a crocodile of about 2.5 meters," writes Cigarruista. He then continues to describe various attempts to capture the monster.
