Police were called after an 'alligator' on the loose spooked a jogger.
The runner came across the strange sight on his route along Queenborough Road, Halfway, Sheppey, but thankfully the cold-blooded critter was actually a plastic model.
The jogger, who did not want to be named, said: "To whomever left this plastic alligator along the Queenborough Road this morning you caused me to jump like a baby gazelle whilst almost jogging over it.
"I suppose you think you’re funny? Well, so do I. Keep up the good work buddy."
However, it wasn't only the runner who felt nervy after spotting the beast. A concerned member of the public even called the police.
A police spokesman said: "Officers were called to Queenborough Road, Sheerness, at 7.42am today (March 23) after a concerned member of the public reported that they thought they had seen a alligator at the side of the road.
"An officer attended and located the two-foot long plastic alligator which has been seized to prevent further calls to the location."
This hasn't been the only strange object found in Kent recently.
Yesterday, it was reported how a skull had been found in a carrier bag in Maidstone.
And in May 2020 armed police and a helicopter were called after a tiger was spotted near Sevenoaks.
