Brampton alligator's appearance shocks neighbours
A one-metre long alligator gave Brampton, Ont., residents quite a stir when it was spotted in a backyard on Sunday afternoon.
Police were called and the alligator was captured with the use of a catch-pull, a long pole often used on vicious dogs.
No one knows exactly how the gator got there. Brampton has a bylaw against keeping alligators as pets.
The animal has since been sent to a wildlife sanctuary but as CBC's Ivy Cuervo reports, people are still talking about the reptile's visit to their neighbourhood.
