MACHESNEY PARK, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF) – Sometimes, even police need an assist.
Winnebago County Sheriff’s deputies wrangled up an American Alligator. The department posted a picture of the gator with one of its officers.
Animals aren’t quite their specialty, so they called in animal services to assist. The gator has been transferred to a Chicago area reptile recue.
A friendly reminder from the sheriff’s office, alligators are not legal to have as pets.
