A call of an alligator on the loose snapped police into action in western New York. Police in the city of Jamestown say a resident called about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday to report an alligator in a side yard.

Officers and the city's animal control officer were able to round up the 3-foot creature without incident.

They don't know where it came from or how long it may have been wandering the city.
