The Mullica Township Police Department is warning residents to be cautious with their small pets: an alligator has been on the loose since 4:45 p.m. Tuesday.
The alligator is believed to be three to four feet long, according to a post from the police department’s Facebook page that has been shared more than 2,000 times:
The gator — at least, it’s believed to be the same one — was caught on video by one intrepid Mullica resident on Wednesday afternoon in the Devonshire area of the township:
Not your normal backyard wildlife, that's for sure.
As of 3:50 p.m. Thursday afternoon, the police department told the Press of Atlantic City, the animal has still not been located.
