The post initially stated the creature was an alligator, but Twitter came to the rescue to set the story straight.
.@lizzieohreally Oh, ok. Then it makes much more sense that he'd be on 9th. That's more of a crocodile hangout than an alligator spot...thx— NYPD 34th Precinct (@NYPD34Pct) July 23, 2015
The little crocodile that could was even caught between the Uber -- NYC crossfire.
.@yaelbt I heard he couldn't get a cab. And he wasn't thrilled with Uber either...— NYPD 34th Precinct (@NYPD34Pct) July 23, 2015
The NYPD captured Inwood’s communal pet at 205 th Street and handed it over to Animal Care & Control. Thankfully no injuries -- man or animal -- were reported.
