ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) — An alligator that was seen roaming a residential neighborhood in Enfield has been caught near the Connecticut River.
Enfield police Sgt. Mark Squires tells The Journal Inquirer of Manchester that authorities were called out around 7 a.m. Friday after an alligator that was about two or three feet long was seen in the Thompsonville section of town.
He said it was found wearing a collar, but no leash. It was not immediately clear where the animal came from.
A representative from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection responded to the situation along with animal control officers and Enfield police.
