While in Spain some are intimidating with their Pittbull or Rotweiler, in the favelas of Rio the traffickers do it with alligators.

The local police in Rio de Janeiro He has performed an operation in a favela called Coréia where they have found a pair of alligators. Apparently, drug traffickers use this fierce and imposing animal to intimidate their enemies and eliminate the corpses.

In the words of the Rio police themselves:

Alligators are a symbol of power among traffickers. When they catch an opponent, they kill him and give it to the alligators.

Alligators are not usually as large as crocodiles but for intimidation and trituration The result is exactly the same.

If you travel through Rio we advise you not to get into drug stories and control the areas you visit. There are tours of the darkest areas that surround Rio de Janeiro, if you decide to do one, I recommend that you read this article about this type of visits around the favelas.
