KENOSHA, Wis. – An alligator escaped from a backyard in Wisconsin and went on a stroll around the neighborhood.
Its owner, David Prill, told WISN that the alligator was outside in the sun all day enjoying the kiddie pool before he realized the alligator had escaped from his backyard. Fortunately, by the time that Prill realized it was gone, the Kenosha police already recovered it.
However, according to WISN, the alligator was eventually turned back over to Prill as KPD determined there was nothing illegal about keeping it.
Prill told WISN that the alligator can bite but it isn’t really dangerous. He has been caring for the alligator since a friend couldn’t have it anymore. He is planning to relocate the alligator to his parent’s place in Florida since they have a pond. In the meantime, he plans to keep a close eye on the alligator.
