ROCK FALLS, Ill. (KWQC) - There appears to be an armadillo roaming around Rock Falls, Illinois.

The Rock Falls Police Department shared a photo of the armadillo on its Facebook page Sunday.

Police say they’ve received several calls over the years for all sorts of animals, but never an armadillo.

Police say they are going to contact the DNR and are finding out if they need to trap and relocate the armadillo.

Police say for now if you see the armadillo, to keep your distance.

Saturday’s night shift crew responded to one of the strangest animal related calls for service any of us here can...
