Trespassing is trespassing, even for animals.
A Texas police department has a sense of humor when it comes to some of the situations they handle. The department recently made headlines for its humorous take on removing an alligator from a resident’s pool.
The Fulshear Police posted about the incident on Facebook, writing that officers had received a call about a trespasser near the Fulshear Creek neighborhood. The “suspect” turned out to be an alligator that had made its way to a backyard pool’s hot tub.
The post joked about how the officers found the gator “swimming naked” and that it was “arrested.” According to the post, the gator was later released after it was removed from the backyard.
The Fulshear Police wrote, “Your officers recently received a call in regard to a Criminal Trespass in the Fulbrook on Fulshear Creek neighborhood. An unknown suspect had entered a homeowner’s backyard and decided to go for a swim in their hot tub (not turned on.) Officers Chavez and Landry quickly made the scene and observed the suspect swimming naked without regard to the owners wishes. The suspect resisted at first but was soon arrested and later released without further incident.”
This is just the latest example of police having some fun after dealing with an alligator.
Fox News previously reported that the Largo Police Department in Florida posted images to its Facebook page of an alligator that was spotted at a local mall. The post is captioned, “This trespasser at the Largo Mall yesterday was a wild one.” A hashtag then identifies the intruder as an alligator.
