The Surrey RCMP had quite an interesting weekend.
The mounties were called twice to a marsh off Highway 17 and 104 after receiving reports of a crocodile swimming in the murky water.
What a couple people thought was a crocodile actually turned out to be a blown truck tire.
Another croc sighting called in this weekend in the marsh off of Hwy 17 & 104 Ave. It sure looks like one, but it's commercial truck tire! pic.twitter.com/Gspwtz409f

Locals can sleep soundly at night knowing that metro Vancouver’s temperature can’t support crocodiles or alligators.
However, residents are reminded to report any suspicious wildlife they may come across in their neighbourhood.
People are also warned not to get close to any wildlife. In May, a sea lion dragged a young girl into the Steveston waters after she sat down on the edge of the dock.
