The internet isn’t convinced this truck tire isn’t a crocodile
This is definitely a picture of a crocodile right? You can see the head, the nose, the tail, even the scales.
Well, don’t let your eyes deceive you. The photo was taken in Surrey, British Columbia, and crocs definitely don’t (usually) live in Canada.
So if it’s not a croc, then what is it? The Surrey Royal Canadian Mounted Police has the answer.
That’s right. No need to be alarmed. It’s literally just a discarded truck tire floating in the water. Litter isn’t great, but at least it can’t eat you.
Still convinced it’s a crocodile? You’re not the only one.
We got called to the same area a couple of weeks ago, must be the same tire but it has moved a bit apparently!

So, are you in the conspiracy camp that believes the tire is a paranormal apparition attempting to play tricks on us?
So it’s a haunted tire

Or are you a conspiracy theorist that believes the Surrey police isn’t giving the full story and there might be a secret Canadian croc invasion?
Either way, it’s apparently a common thing for crocodilian creatures and truck tires to be lumped together.
The slang word for a blown truck tire is a ” Gator”
