Crocodile escapes, scares shoppers at California mall

Posted: Updated:
CALIFORNIA - A 4-ft. crocodile was found wandering a shopping center Wednesday morning after it got out of a plastic box.

It was left abandoned in front of a reptile store and managed to escape from its crate.  The croc was a surprise for police and animal control officers who were not used to wrangling a feisty croc.

Luckily no one, including the crocodile, was hurt.  The croc is expected to be turned over to a rescue organization.
