IF you go down to the woods today - beware of the crocodiles!
That's the stern warning being handed out to visitors to the Robert Ashton Memorial Park in Meltham.
People stopping off to feed the ducks on the park pond, sited in a wooded glade, have come face to face with a new warning sign: Beware of the crocodile.
And it is accompanied by a sharp-toothed crocodile with an evil grin on his face.
The sign has appeared in the past few days - just after the whole area was hit by flash floods.
But experts say that it is highly unlikely the freak weather will have been bad enough to bring crocodiles into Meltham from their native habitats.
The signs are thought to be the work of a mystery artist, whose earlier efforts warned of the bears of Netherton.
A roadside warning sign for motorists heading from Meltham into Netherton told in June of an added danger on the roads - bears.
A mystery sign appeared near the junction of Crosland Spring Road and Huddersfield Road, Healey House, declaring `Caution Bears'.
No-one has claimed responsibility, no bears were spotted, but now the sign writer has struck again.
The latest home-made sign is perched on a mound of rocks in the middle of the duck pond.
But at least it doesn't seem to be scaring off the ducks and water fowl who have made the pond their home for years.
