SUNSET BEACH, N.C. — Police officers in North Carolina came across a scaly sight in front of a home Thursday morning.

The Sunset Beach Police Department said on Facebook officers found an 8-foot alligator relaxing on the sidewalk in front of a house on Sandpiper Bay Drive.

Officers stood by to make sure no one got too close. The gator eventually went on its way.

The police department is reminding people to keep your distance if you spot a gator, and don't feed, harass, or harm them.
