Authorities in the Northern California town of Roseville responded to a wild call Wednesday after a 4-foot crocodile was found wandering around in a suburban shopping center. Its mouth taped shut, the stray reptile was apparently abandoned in front of a pet store near a TJ Maxx parking lot in Roseville, said police Sgt. Kelby Newton. The Nile crocodile had been left in a makeshift cage - a gray plastic tub taped shut with duct tape - but escaped, Newton said. Next to it was a note that instructed its finder to “call rescue.” The crocodile wandered past a Panera Bread restaurant and a pizza joint before stopping at a local runner's store.
