Mafia bosses used crocodiles, boa constrictors and pythons to intimidate victims...

Police in Italy have lifted the lid on an enormous collection of animals they have confiscated from jailed or arrested mob bosses.

Threatening an adversary with a shotgun or a knife is no longer sufficient for the more flamboyant godfathers it seems, who are now resorting to a menagerie of exotic wildlife to extort protection money from business owners or to intimidate rivals.

Among the confiscated hoard were crocodiles, boa constrictors and an African grey parrot that had been trained by its drug-dealing mafia owner to say: “Adesso ti sparo” – “Now I’m going to shoot you”.

When drug addicts rang the mobster’s mobile phone to place an order, the bird would squawk down the line: “How much do you need?” (in Italian, “Quanta te ne serve?”)

 When police raided the home of a known mafia boss near the town of Caserta, a stronghold of the Camorra near Naples, they found a crocodile kept on the terrace of the house. Full story...
