Cedar Hill police, animal control catch gator roaming street

Police in Cedar Hill responded to a call Sunday night about an unusual suspect running down a street – a suspect that appears to be a baby alligator.

Officers called animal control experts to help with the gator, according to the Cedar Hill Police Department's Facebook page.

The animal control officials helped wrangle the gator into a professional trap and then took it to the Tri-City Animal Shelter.  

Officers aren't sure how the gator ended up in Cedar Hill.  Responding to a question on their Facebook page about the discovery, they wrote, "That's a good question. We'd like to know the answer too."
