Police in a North Carolina town shared the moment they captured a nine-foot alligator that had attempted to enter a community pool, and the image has provided plenty of laughs on social media.
Sunset Beach Police Department in Brunswick County were called to Oyster Bay Drive on October 15 after receiving complaints from local residents about a large alligator walking around the neighborhood.
According to social media posts from SBPD, the alligator had also attempted to enter the community pool. After arriving on the scene, officers discover that the alligator had even broken through the porch lattice at the reservation office.
Officers caught the alligator using a lasso-like invention and with the safety of residents in mind, relocated the animal to a nearby pond.
