An alligator may have moved into a pond on the city’s north side.

Conservation officers were called to a retention pound at 3500 Depauw Blvd. near the Pyramids after receiving multiple reports of an alligator in the water Tuesay.

Crews used scan sonar and a boat to search the pond but were unsuccessful in locating an alligator. Officials said that does not eliminate the possibility that one could still be in the water. While crews were unable to find a gator in the water, he or she is already on Twitter.

Alligators have been found in Indiana waters mostly due to people releasing them.

If anyone knows of someone who has released a wild animal please contact the Department of Natural Resources, Law Enforcement Division at 812-837-9536.
