6-foot alligator captured by police after turning up outside Michigan church

JACKSON, Mich. — Authorities say a 6-foot-long alligator was caught after being spotted roaming the property of a southern Michigan church.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports officers from the Blackman-Leoni Township public safety department near Jackson caught the alligator on Monday. A passing motorist called police to Pathway Community Church after spotting it outside.

Police say arrangements were made to transport the alligator to a sanctuary.

Police say the alligator was in good health and likely was recently released. With colder weather approaching it might not have survived outdoors.
