BRAMPTON, Ont. — A case of mistaken identity had police in Brampton, Ont., looking for an alligator in a storm drainage pond.
Peel Regional Police were called to the Brampton pond Friday night after some reported seeing the reptile — said to be almost two-metres long.
Police tweeted they were “ready to provide Gator-aid” to animal control officers.
But after a few hours, police tweeted that Brampton Animal Control had reviewed video on social media and determined the gator was actually a beaver.
