Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Police in Oklahoma wrangled a alligator and were able to safely capture the loose reptile, but its origins remain unknown.
The Moore Police Department said Sgts. Snavely and Hernandez responded to a neighborhood on a report of a loose alligator and they arrived to find someone had placed a plastic basket over the animal.
Police needed to get the gator into a more secure situation and body camera footage shows Snavely carefully capturing the alligator before animal control personnel arrived.
Investigators said they are trying to determine where the gator came from.
