It sounds like some old fairytale lmao.gif

The search for Lotti, an elusive, sharp-beaked snapping turtle terrorizing residents of a Bavarian town, has taken a bizarre twist - with the local mayor deploying a giant rake to catch the wayward reptile.

For the past seven weeks, authorities in the Bavarian town of Irsee have keeping their eyes peeled for the bite-happy snapping turtle thought to be residing in the nearby Oggenreider lake.

Nicknamed Lotti, the creature struck fear into a southern Germany town after severing an eight-year-old boy's Achilles tendon while he was swimming.

"We'll get her out of the sludge with a giant rake," the mayor said, adding that he had commissioned the village blacksmith Hans Kohlhund, 75, to create the massive tool, which should be ready to deploy in three to four weeks.

Pulled by a system of ropes, the plan is to use the metre-wide, wrought-iron rake to dredge the whole of the 16,000 metre-squared lake floor and force Lotti out of her muddy hideaway.
