PLYMOUTH, Ind. (AP) — An alligator that was hanging out in a northern Indiana retention pond has been captured after being lured to shore with a frog.

The reptile was captured around 3 a.m. Wednesday and turned over to police in Plymouth, about 20 miles south of South Bend. 

WNDU-TV reports the alligator is 2-3 feet long, and may have been a pet. The reptiles are usually found in the wild in southeastern states and can grow to 13 feet.

Teenage boys fishing at the pond earlier this week said the alligator tried to eat their bait. Residents flocked to the pond to see “Ali” the alligator.
