The San Pedro Sun donated 1 rt ticket via Tropic for Dr. I Paquet to come to the island to fix the croc's leg and the Belize Wildlife Conservation Network donated $170 bzd for med supplies.

We just need another $333 for 1 more rt ticket from Belmopan to the island on Sunday at 9 am for the doc's vet tech to help.

Successful surgery performed on American Crocodile

The American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES) along with Doctor Isabelle Paquet-Durand have successfully completed surgery on a rescued American Crocodile. The crocodile was recovered with a large laceration on its right hind leg from the San Juan area on Tuesday, August 27th after ACES received several reports of a problematic crocodile roaming in the streets and yards of nearby houses. ACES quickly acted on the information and removed the croc that had a notable wound on one of its legs.

According to ACES biologist Cherie Chenot-Rose, the crocodile was dragging its hind leg and had a large open cut on the right hind leg. “The crocodile was impaired when we rescued it. The cut was clearly made by a machete and was prone to infection if not treated,” said Rose.

The wound was severe and needed urgent veterinary care to stitch it up so it could heal properly. Dr. Isabelle Paquet-Durand from Belmopan was contacted to perform the surgery. Dr. Paquet-Durand travelled to San Pedro Town on Sunday, September 1st, along with a couple of her students and two other veterinarians.
