British police rushing to assist what appeared to be a collapsed man made a far more unusual discovery — a man walking an alligator.
Avon and Somerset Police said officers in Filton spotted what they “thought to be a collapsed male” and rushed to the man’s side.
The officers discovered the man was not collapsed — he was walking his gator.
“When we stopped to offer assistance and first aid, we discovered it was actually a nearby reptile store owner walking his [4-foot] alligator,” the Facebook post said. “Not the sort of thing you see every day.”
