A man walking his dog was in for quite a surprise when he encountered an alligator on his way 100 miles off the coast in the state of Idaho, USA.
“He saw something moving in a bush and he discovered an alligator measuring 3-foot-5,” the Idaho Department of Fish and Game said.
The New Plymouth resident reportedly captured the reptile and put it in a horse trailer. He would then have called the Department of Hunting and Fishing.
The alligator is currently being held at the Department’s site.
Moreover, this reptile cannot be found in the wild in Idaho.
“In all likelihood, this alligator has escaped from someone’s home, and we are interested in finding its owner,” regional conservation officer Matt O’Connell said.
