    , Mo. (AP) - Police responding to an alligator sighting in a suburban Kansas City pond took quick action to dispatch the big reptile.

    It wasn't until after the second rifle shot bounced off the beast Sunday that the three Independence officers realized it was a concrete lawn ornament.

    Independence police spokesman Tom Gentry says the department received a call from a man who said a gator had been spotted in the woods. Gentry says the alligator was in the weeds near a tree by a pond and it looked real. An officer shot the gator twice in the head - per instructions from a conservation officer - before realizing it wasn't moving.

    I'm with them! If I were facing a big gator, I'd shoot first and investigate second.

    My sister has a pond on their 3 acre yard. Somewhere she found a floating plastic alligator head and slipped it in the pond. Her DH saw it and flipped out. [​IMG]
