New peril on the Pisuerga River?

Twice walked from St Jean to Estella and once from Sarria to Santiago. Maybe someday I'll find the time to do the entire walk.
I've found the time. Just completed SJPP to Santiago. 25 Aug to 1st Oct, 2016.
And now the Portuguese from Lisbon.
Don't be taking the opportunity to cool your feet in this river until this mystery is cleared up. Witnesses, including a police officer, have reported sightings of a crocodile .

No worries. This is near Valladolid, miles away from the Camino Frances - but it is near the Madrid. An entertaining story, to be sure.

I heard on the radio today that there is no trace of the crocodile and they are thinking it was a "fat otter".
A meter and a half long!? Some otter. "Fat" would not be my choice of adjectives.
Sign me up - I definitely want to see this. 🤣

Except the Francés
I passed through Herrera de Pisuerga on the Camino Lebaniego-Castellano a couple of years ago. It is the world centre of the crayfish, and obsessed with them - there is a large statue of a crayfish on the centre of town, many bars and restaurants with their own special ways of cooking them, a Casa de Cangrejos interpretation centre/museum, and an annual Fiesta de Exaltación del Cangrejo de Río which, sadly, I missed by several months.

Perhaps one of their crayfish got over exaltacion-ed and mutated into a giant one and swam downstream?
