Nobody knows how it got there...

It measured in at 1.5 metres, so it’s likely just a baby but who would ever expect an alligator on the loose in Ontario?

Animal Services seem stumped on how it got there but luckily there were no injuries.

Hamilton Bylaws prohibit having a gator as a pet and I’m not sure why you would want one anyway.
