THERE ARE many places that you may expect to find an alligator, but in the back of a police car is not one.

Footage released by the Sheriff’s Office in Hillsborough County, Florida, shows the reptile sliding out of a police car and making its ways towards a nearby lake.

Police said the alligator was given a ride home in a squad car after straying from a lake in Brandon on June 25. The alligator had made its way to a local pharmacy and a petrol station before being picked up by four deputies.
