Near the Connecticut River, residents were a bit surprised when a 2-3 foot alligator was captured in Enfield, Connecticut.

WWLP reports how an alligator, wearing a collar, was nabbed at a bus stop.

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.

It was wearing a collar, but there was 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.
