We may forever link Mullica Township to it's famous alligator spotted in the township last September, but it was a different beast that caught the local police department's attention Thursday night.

Mullica Township Police were successful in corralling a not-so-wild animal on Route 30 near Heidelberg Avenue.

It was a horse! (Not the Mulligator - the name we have concocted for the wayward alligator.)

According to the Mullica Township Facebook page, a horse name "Jazzy" was making a run for freedom, that was cut short thanks to officers  Lupinetti,  Symuleski and Patel.

Well done, Mullica Township Police!
