Police capture alligator that broke into Florida mall
He is a suspect who cannot be handcuffed because his the arms are too short.
A Florida police department recently shared footage of an intruder removed from a mall. Apparently alligators are not allowed inside shopping complexes.
the Largo Police Department posted the images on his Facebook page. The message is captioned: “That intruder at Largo Mall yesterday was a savage.” A hashtag then identifies the intruder as an alligator.
In the footage, two police officers can be seen carrying the animal out of the mall. The alligator has a bag placed over its head (for obvious safety reasons) and one of the officers appears to be carrying a rod to help control the animal.
The alligator appears to be calm throughout the ordeal.
The LPD also shared a photo of the alligator on its Facebook before it was captured. The image, which shows the animal hanging around near a brick wall, is captioned “The suspect just before arrest”.
Facebook users seemed as amused as the police department, with one user writing, “He was just shopping, come on!
Another user joked that it was strange to see the gator near the target side of the mall.
This is just the last encounter between people and alligators in a public space.
As Fox News previously reported, someone visiting a post office in Florida came across a surprising sight: an alligator hanging out in the lobby. Apparently the animal had simply entered through the building’s front doors and was hanging out.
the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office posted about the incident on Facebook in mid-June, writing that he had received reports of an alligator in the lobby of a local post office around 3:30 a.m.
