SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The alligator found near the Sheboygan River last Sunday has found a new home.
DNR Conservation Warden Mike Clutter said the four foot long reptile will be living at the Chicago Herpetological Society. Since getting the animal from Sheboygan law enforcement, Clutter said he has been busy contacting several zoos and animal rescue groups to find a proper home. He eventually got a lead with the group Small Scale Reptile Rescue in Milwaukee, which assisted in transporting the alligator to Chicago Tuesday evening.
A search is still ongoing for whoever left the animal along the river, and that person would face a fine of $539.50.
