Sept. 2 (UPI) — Police in Texas captured an alligator found lurking next to an ATM and hissing at customers making withdrawals.
The Lake Worth Police Department said in a Facebook post that a woman who used the ATM reported hearing a “hissing” sound while withdrawing money, and officers arrived to find a 3 1/2-foot alligator lurking next to the machine.
A Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden was summoned to the scene and helped the officers subdue the alligator.
The gator was relocated “to an appropriate habitat nearby.”
