It’s looks like it's now safe to go back in the water.
An alligator that was spotted for the second time in Flushing Meadows Park has reportedly been captured.
The creature was caught Tuesday afternoon by police and had its mouth taped before being taken away, according to police and media reports. After being bagged by the NYPD's Emergency Service Unit, it was set to be transported by Urban Park Rangers to Brooklyn Animal Care and Control.
Following another apparent sighting in early August, the now captured alligator was spotted in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Monday, officials said.
