Alligator Crawls Out of Drain at Apartment Complex in Mobile

People at an apartment complex in Mobile were  paid a visit by an unusual guest as children were coming home from school: an alligator that crawled out of a storm drain.

Kenisha Miller and her boyfriend, Anthony Patterson, told WKRG-TV that they were driving home Monday afternoon when they stopped to do a double-take in a downtown Mobile neighborhood.

The couple tried to get police and wildlife officials to the scene quickly as the reptile inched toward the complex. A school bus was dropping off kids not even 50 feet down the street.

Wildlife officials safely captured the alligator and took it away.
