Capybaras are so yesterday: Search on for Brampton alligator

CityNews | posted Friday, May 27th, 2016

Move over, capybaras, there’s a new animal on the loose.

A baby alligator vanished near a Brampton creek on Thursday, sparking a police search.

The alligator was first spotted near Cottrelle Boulevard and Thorndale Road around 3:30 p.m. Peel police said that they had received several calls about the animal.

Police went out to look, but did not find the gator. They said they hope it went back into the creek, one of several near The Gore and Castlemore roads.

If you see it, call police.

It’s not yet known where the alligator came from, or how it got loose.

Meanwhile, the two capybaras – dubbed Bonnie and Clyde – are still on the lam from Toronto’s High Park Zoo.
