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.
