Fake Alligator Shot By Police

Police in Missouri were recently called to a suburban neighborhood to take care of an alligator that was lurking in a pond. They shot the alligator, only to find out it was fake!

It’s almost like something out of a Warner Brothers cartoon, right?

Officers in Independence, a Kansas City suburb, responded to a call on a Saturday evening about a large alligator lurking on the embankment of a pond, police spokesman Tom Gentry said Thursday.

An officer called a state conservation agent, who advised him to shoot the alligator because there was little that conservation officials could do at that time, Gentry said.

As instructed an officer shot the alligator, not once but twice, but both times the bullets bounced off — because the alligator was made of cement.

OK, there’s a part of me that doesn’t want to laugh at the police because they’re out there every day busting their butts for us, but this time… I have to have a good laugh at their expense. I also tip my hat to the creator of this cement alligator that looked so real that it was shot at.

Interestingly, the gator was originally placed in the pond because the property owner wanted to keep children out of his yard. Now the neighbors just need to be fearful of stray bullets when someone decides to shoot the cement sculpture.
