Mexico finds 34 crocodiles milked for their blood

AP – Mexican authorities have rescued 14 crocodiles and found 20 others dead in a squatters’ settlement where people were apparently “milking” the crocs for their blood. The office for environmental protection said that some local residents in Chiapas wanted the blood because they believed it could cure cancer, diabetes, AIDS and other diseases. Scientists say there is no evidence that crocodile blood cures these diseases.
