A German lake is closed to swimmers after a woman claimed to have seen crocodiles in the water.
The walker made the alarm on Tuesday evening when she said she had seen three of the reptiles in the lake in Kirchheim unter Teck in southern Germany.
The police took its claims seriously enough to close Lake Bürgersee and the surrounding park while investigating whether the crocodiles were really abandoned pets.
Several officers went to the scene that evening and resumed their search the next day, although they did not have & # 39; crocodiles or similar reptiles & # 39; found.

There are signs around the perimeter of the park that warn the public of the potential crocodile threat.
According to German media, municipal officials have informed experts from Wilhelma Zoo in nearby Stuttgart about the risk of reptiles.
All three lakes that are part of the park are closed to swimmers.
Local officials are also ready to keep visitors away and the closure is expected to remain in place until at least Monday.
& # 39; City administrators are in close contact with police and other experts to clarify as quickly as possible whether the observed animals were really crocodiles, & # 39;
Rain is expected this weekend, but the following week swimmers hope to be able to use the lake when temperatures are expected to reach 93F in the city.
The city, in the state of Baden-Württemberg, is approximately 35 km from Stuttgart.
