“I think there is an alligator in Brampton” was the call that came into Peel Police.

At 10:25 p.m. on Friday, April 30, police reported that they were searching for an alligator after it was reportedly spotted in a pond in the area of Charolais Blvd and McLaughlin Road.

Peel Police officers attended the scene to search for the reptile.

However, upon further investigation, Peel police believes the animal that was seen is a beaver.

To this day Peel Police have never encountered an alligator in Brampton or Mississauga.

A few years back a video did surface and in that video it looked like there was an alligator in Brampton but upon further investigation it was a beaver posing as an alligator again.
