But it was vicious

Cops in Independence shoot gator; find out it's lawn ornament

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. • Police responding to an alligator sighting in a suburban Kansas City pond took quick action to dispatch the big reptile.

It wasn't until after the second rifle shot bounced off the beast Sunday that the three Independence officers realized it was a concrete lawn ornament. [...]

Gentry says the landowner told officers he put the fake gator there to keep children off his property.
