That's no catfish!

Animal control officials in the Las Vegas area report a fisherman after catfish landed a 3½-foot-long alligator at a Sunset Park lake.

Of course, Sin City isn't gator country.

Wildlife officials figure it might have been someone's pet and the gator was released into the lake when it got too big.

Officials note importing and owning alligators is illegal in Nevada.
