Claxton Bay man fights off caiman

A Clax­ton Bay res­i­dent is thank­ing his lucky stars that his pet dog Gar­roth was not de­voured by a caiman which crawled in­to his yard ear­ly yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Af­ter be­ing alert­ed by his moth­er-in-law, Nazir Mo­hammed used a piece of wood to ward off the men­ac­ing caiman which was just three feet away from his mixed-breed dog.

Re­count­ing the in­ci­dent, Mo­hammed said short­ly be­fore 7 am he was awak­ened by his moth­er-in-law knock­ing on the front door of his Ram­sa­roop Trace, Macaulay Vil­lage, home.

Caiman causes stir, stops traffic in attempt to cross highway

Why did the caiman cross the road? Your guess is as good as any but what we do know is that it created quite a stir as police and a passer-by tried to get it back into the wetland from which it came.

The video was posted by Ricky Ramnath on his Facebook page.


Ramnath said, "This fella was causing a massive traffic jam right on d accident site. Caroni"

The caiman caused afternoon rush-hour traffic to stop along the south-bound lane of the highway.
