Police in the U.S. pulled an alligator out of a hot tub (video)

Texas police officers shared a video of the capture of an unusual “troublemaker.”

In the video, officers from the city of Fulshire pull a live alligator out of a hot tub. In the heat, the small animal snuck into the yard of local residents and decided to cool off a bit.

Unhappy that he was prevented from resting, the alligator resisted at first, police reported on social media. But then it did surrender to police. “The alligator was arrested and then safely released without further incident,” officers joked.
