Pierce County sheriff’s department found the animal after they had been tipped off that a resident was keeping an alligator on their property.
This bodycam footage, released by officials, shows the 6’7” gator being wrangled out of the box by deputies and animal control officers. It was then brought to a wildlife rehabilitation sanctuary.
Bizarrely, police also found a baby cow inside the same container, along with a mattress for the owner to sleep on.
