VIDEO: Crocodile stalks the streets of Acapulco

The death toll from days of flooding in southern and central Mexico rose to 81 on Wednesday, and reports of landslides in a village near the resort of Acapulco threatened to drive the number of casualties even higher.

The flooding also created yet another problem for residents: a crocodile was roaming the streets of Acapulco.

Some gathered around the animal as it crawled along the street while others cautiously looked from a distance.

The crocodile was eventually captured.

Elsewhere in the city residents looted stores and thousands of tourists waited to be ferried out by air.
