A 3 foot alligator was spotted going over the falls at Monocacy Creek in Illicks Park, and then submerged itself. Police were called and searched both sides of the waterfall. They found the aligator submerged by some rocks, when Officer Eric Yeakel tried to snare the gator, he submerged himself deeper. The gator was seen a couple more times, and 45 minutes later was seen along a stone wall. Yeakel was then able to snare the alligator and drag it to shore.
The gator was transported to Reptile World for treatment, according to LehighValleyLive.com . The Bethlehem Police Department is asking for help finding where the alligator came from.
