If you were thinking about taking a dip in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, you may want to reconsider. Yesterday afternoon, the NYPD’s 110th precinct tweeted out an INCREDIBLY alarming photo of a two-foot alligator an intrepid local fisherman had managed to catch in the Queens park.

They also posted a video of fugitive gator, nicknamed “Jaws,” stealthily swimming in the wild.

Apparently the NYPD have been tracking outer-borough reptile since August. All in all, recent events have definitely not made us feel any better about the possible existence of sewer alligators.
