In Oregon
They do not flush their alligators down the toilet. They send them out hiking.

GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) — Turns out, there really was a large lizard roaming the area at the end of a Gresham hiking trail.

Gresham police for weeks had been hearing reports of the creature. On Friday they nabbed what turned out to be a three-foot alligator.

A couple hiking the Springwater Trail found their path blocked by the alligator and called 9-1-1.

Update: Pictures here.
