Small alligator found under vehicle in Kansas City suburb

Posted: Updated:

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a small alligator has been found under a vehicle in suburban Kansas City.

Police in Olathe, Kansas, say in a Facebook post that an animal control officer captured the gator earlier this week. The post says it's "Something you don't expect to see in Kansas." The gator is spending the week in a shelter before heading to a reptile rescue in Manhattan next week. Alligators aren't allowed to live in the city.

The alligator appears be about 1 foot (30 centimeters) long. Photos posted online show it soaking in a tub of water and someone holding up the animal.
