Fishers police were alerted early Saturday morning about an alligator roaming the southbound lanes of I-69 near the Cumberland Road overpass. 

Police were able to recover the animal and it was taken to a reptile rescue service in Strawtown about 15 miles away. 

The alligator appeared to be in good health but may have been wandering around the area for several weeks.
