Good thing the zoo officials didn't take their dart gun on this call. That would definitely have been fatal for the alligator in question!

Those are funny. I bet the sheep slept well after munching on all of those leaves!

If the dinner was well prepared I might not have called the police.

At least "Goldilocks" was sleeping when they found him. If he was in the tub that could have been quite awkward. ;)
