Out in Mobile, Alabama, an apartment complex was paid a visit by an unusual guest as children were coming home from school on Monday afternoon. An alligator was seen crawling out of a storm drain.

Kenisha Miller and her boyfriend, Anthony Patterson, told local news outlet WKRG-TV that they were driving home when they stopped to do a double-take. “We saw a gator coming out of the drainage hole, and I was like, ‘Is that really a gator?’ Miller said. The couple tried to get police and wildlife officials to the scene quickly as the reptile inched toward the complex.

A school bus was dropping off kids not even 50 feet down the street. “They were just as shocked as we were,” Patterson said. “Never (seen) nothing like this, in the hood anyway.”

Wildlife officials safely captured the alligator and took it away.
