April 12 (UPI) -- British police rushing to assist what appeared to be a collapsed man made a far more unusual discovery -- a man walking an alligator.

Avon and Somerset Police said officers in Filton spotted what they "thought to be a collapsed male" and rushed to the man's side.


The officers discovered the man was not collapsed -- he was walking his gator.

"When we stopped to offer assistance and first aid, we discovered it was actually a nearby reptile store owner walking his [4-foot] alligator," the Facebook post said. "Not the sort of thing you see every day."
