Alligator Found In Fishtown

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

A new neighbor in Philadelphia's Fishtown section learns the people there maybe aren't so happy about water-loving animals after all.

A man snapped this picture of an 18-inch alligator, coming out of a sewer grate.

He called police, and The Animal Care & Control Team took the gator away.

They're calling the reptile "Allie Gator" for now. And "Allie" will stay with animal control, until they can find him a permanent new home.
