    KC-area cops shoot gator - it was a lawn ornament

    Police shoot gator, find out it's a lawn ornament (kansascity.com)
    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.

    [Independence police spokesman Tom] Gentry says the alligator was in the weeds near a tree by a pond and it looked real. An officer shot the gator twice in the head per instructions from a conservation officer before realizing it wasn't moving.
