EL CAJON, Calif. – Police were called to corral a “possible alligator” that was walking around the backyard of an El Cajon home.
Sgt. Will Guerin, Officer Nike Jones and Officer Allen Boyer didn’t know what to expect after receiving an emergency call about an alligator walking around backyards on Helix View Drive on Friday.
The officers discovered the animal was a very large iguana and managed to take it into custody, but not before being whipped by the 5-foot-long tail a couple of times.
The owner of the rogue reptile was found and safely returned home.
