NRK brackets crocodiles with refugees

Norway broadcaster NRK published an article, Monday, about three crocodiles that risk being put down following a zoo’s bankruptcy, as they are ‘paperless immigrants’.



The story of the 2.5 metre-long (approximately 8 foot) aggressive reptiles was released by Swedish paper Aftonbladet. It was subsequently picked up by NRK, and was one of the morning news’ lead stories read by anchor Øystein Heggen.

Zoo employee Rune Sæther is trying to find the crocodiles a new home in Hungary, and Swedish police are now investigating the matter after it was discovered “that the immigrants had no identity documents,” reports NRK.

“However, authorities require the crocodiles have their paperwork in order to emigrate to Hungary. Police have also become interested in the crocodiles now, even though they have been in Sweden for a couple of decades.”

Norwegian immigration authorities have recently been in the news following a return deal signed with Ethiopia, whose nationals have been living in Norway for years without full rights. An agreement with Eritrea is also on the cards.

There is an ongoing debate about how the Norwegian state treats paperless asylum seekers.
