Modern crocs have the internet.
Avon and Somerset police Chief Constable Nick Gargan told his Twitter followers that a bus driver flagged down an officer claiming to have spotted the large reptile under a bridge.
Gargan tweeted: “One of our officers was flagged down by a bus driver today, claiming to have seen a 6ft crocodile under Coronation Bridge. We can’t find it.”
A spokesperson said: “We were called at 10:28am on Monday, February 3, to reports of a crocodile sighted on Bedminster Bridge.
“We carried out a search of the area but found no trace of the reptile.
The reptile would certainly NOT feel at home in that climate. Typically, these are cases of mistaken ID.
Chris the Croc already has his own Twitter account: @TheBristolCroc
He and the police are communicating via Twitter. It’s a strange world.

UPDATE (11-Feb-2014) He was reported again. But that STILL does not mean he actually exists. People interpret what they see based on what they beleive they are seeing.
It’s Log, log; It’s big, it’s heavy, it’s wood. Not croc.
