This morning Vancouver police responded to a "hysterical" caller with an unusually toothy issue.
A woman reported an alligator in the high-rise building where she lives at 7 a.m. this morning (July 22).
In a tweet Cst. Jason Doucette wrote the resident came face to face with the gator and hid in a stairwell.
Luckily the police were able to confirm that the bright gold lizard was in fact a "realistic fake." Doucette shared a photo of the life-sized golden piece of art.
"Phew," wrote Doucette, about the discovery.
