Rescue of an alligator from a pond in a New York park | outside

The four-foot reptile was pulled from the water in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on Sunday after zoo officials spotted the animal. According to New York City Parks, the city’s green space organization, the animal was in poor condition, appearing lethargic and possibly in shock from the cold water. The animal was taken to the Bronx Zoo for examination. It is not known how the crocodile is doing now.

Alligators occur in the wild in the United States, but they usually live in warmer states in the southeastern part of the country, such as Florida or South Carolina.

The crocodile, whose name was said to be Godzilla, may have been dumped by someone. Leaving animals in city parks is illegal, so the police are investigating. A spokesperson for a local news channel said: “The parks are not a suitable environment for animals that are not found naturally in these parks.” “In addition to the potential danger to park visitors, releasing animals can lead to the elimination of naturally occurring species and unhealthy water quality.”

Zoo visitors were shocked to find the animal. “What? Crocodile?” Vijay Jacob, a father of two, told the New York Post. “It’s very scary, as there are a lot of children in this part of the park.”
