The department shared the images of the discovery, which made the rounds on social media, the outlet reported.

The incident isn’t the first where animals were found in the most unexpected places.

A dead shark was found aboard a New York City subway car all the way back in 2013, according to Time.

In March 2022, during a screening night of “The Batman” in Austin, Texas, an actual bat began to fly inside the theatre. Staff attempted to catch the bat unsuccessfully, eventually calling animal control to take care of the situation. Management believed the bat was the result of a prank and promised to implement new security measures to avoid any future incidents.
