Crocodile caught wandering around California mall

In this photo taken on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, and released by the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, CDFW wildlife veterinarian Ben Gonzales, left, has just removed the duct tape from the muzzle of a 4-foot-long crocodile found at a shopping center with the help of aide Tom Batter, right, at the CDFW Wildlife Investigation Lab in Rancho Cordova, Calif.

Police and animal control officers on Wednesday wrangled the crocodile with a catch pole typically used for dogs after the reptile escaped from a plastic box placed outside a reptile store in Roseville.
