Naples, ItalyItalian police have seized a crocodile allegedly used by a suspected mafia boss to intimidate people into paying protection money, officials said Wednesday. The 40-kilogram, 1.7-metre long, reptile which was kept on a terrace equipped with a small pool, was discovered during a search at the man’s house near the southern town of Caserta.

“The crocodile was fed live rabbits, a spectacle neighbors could watch from surrounding terraces,” police anti-mafia squad official, Maurizio Vallone told the German Press Agency dpa.

The suspect who has been charged with the illegal possession of animals, is believed to run several racketeering operations in Caserta, an area where the Naples version of the mafia the Camorra is highly active.

You know you are a bad ass mobster when you have a crocodile for a pet. You can forget the whole cinder blocks/river operation when you have a crocodile to dispose of bodies. As far as I’m concerned, you can’t get much higher on the awesome pet list than a crocodile.
