CALDWELL, Kan. (AP) _ Officials in a southern Kansas school district are taking no chances with student safety while a 4-foot-long alligator remains at large.
KAKE-TV reports children at the elementary school in Caldwell were kept indoors during recess Wednesday. The district also cancelled afternoon football practice as a precaution.
Superintendent Alan Jamison says the pet alligator escaped from a home about a block from the elementary school. It's been spotted a couple of times near the building, but no one has been hurt.
Anyone with information on the animal's whereabouts is asked to call Sumner County authorities.
Caldwell is located about 40 miles south of Wichita.
