Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CBS 8) - It's not what El Cajon dispatcher expected to hear when reports of an alligator on the loose came in. 

It turned out the alligator was an iguana. A very large iguana. 

It was found in the backyard of a home on Helix View Drive. 

Three officers managed to wrangle the reptile into custody, but not before being whipped by the five-foot tail once or twice. 

The owner was found and the iguana is now back home.
