Police in a Missouri city recently encountered one tough alligator -- or so they thought.

Officers in Independence, which is next to Kansas City and is the state's fourth largest city, responded to a call on a Saturday evening about a large alligator lurking on the embankment of a pond, police spokesman Tom Gentry said Thursday.
