BALDWIN (WABC) -- Officers have captured an alligator seen walking across the parking lot of a supermarket in Baldwin Tuesday.
Police were called to a Pathmark parking lot on Grand Avenue just before 8 p.m., where the 3-foot gator was spotted running loose.
Officers chased the gator and cornered it in some bushes.
Animal Control officers are now trying to find it a proper home.
It's not clear if the gator was being kept as a pet.
The county Emergency Services Unit turned it over to a local wildlife expert.
