‘Fake’ alligator rescue mobilizes firefighters and police in Greater BH

The Military Environmental Police and the Fire Department were mobilized to rescue an alligator, approximately 1 meter of lenght; What they didn’t expect was that it was a replica of the animal, made of plastic. The case was registered in the early hours of this Monday (1st), in Vespasiano, in Greater Belo Horizonte.

But there is a reason for the confusion: the animal is made by biologist Adriano Marques de Souza, who has a company that makes animal replicas for scientific purposes. The alligator was found in the garden of the condominium where he lives.

“I woke up scared, my wife’s cousin told me they were going to rescue the alligator. I’m in the condominium apologizing”, narrated the biologist.

Still according to Adriano, he had done the alligator to leave as decoration in the garden and notified neighbors — including children — and condominium employees.

The security guard who was on duty in the early hours of Monday, however, had not been informed of the new garden decorationcame across the animal, called the Environmental Military Police, who called the Fire Department.

A video recorded by the firefighters themselves shows the moment of rescue (look above). At the time of capture, the military saw that it was an ornament and the incident was ended.

The alligator replica is made of polyurethane foam, polyester, DAS putty and durepox.
