Crocodile found wandering in Roseville shopping plaza

A 4-foot crocodile was found wandering in a shopping plaza on Douglas Boulevard in Roseville Wednesday morning.

Roseville Police Department spokesperson Dee Dee Gunther said someone abandoned the animal in a container in front of the Serpentarium, a reptile specialty business. A note identified the animal as a Nile crocodile and that animal rescue should be called.

At some point, the crocodile got out of the container and started walking through the TJ Maxx Plaza on the 1800 block of Douglas Boulevard.

"It got out. It was roaming around. We had to call animal control," Serpentarium employee Abigail Kessler said.

The crocodile had duct tape around its snout.
