A three-foot alligator was found swimming in a motel pool in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Tuesday morning (15.08.17).
CBS Philadelphia reports that cops were called to Bayview Inn & Suites in the early hours after the reptile decided to take a walk from nearby Lakes Bay to take a splash in the new surroundings.
The Atlantic City Police Department posted a photo of the unusual hotel guest on Facebook.
They captioned it: ''We get requests and try to fulfil them. Here is a picture of our new pet alligator found in a local motel pool. He/she will be safely removed.''
No one was hurt and the alligator has now been taken to Cape May County Zoo.
