Alligator Alien in Australia

From the BBC:

Wildlife officials in Australia are investigating how an alligator native to North America was found wandering around a campsite in New South Wales.

Campers at the site in Pambula managed to snare the beast in a volleyball net and held its jaws shut.

Police first issued a press statement saying it was an indigenous crocodile but later corrected their error.

The animal's origins remain a mystery as no owners are registered locally either for crocodiles or alligators.

Well, that beats my story.
