Alligator Caught In Manhattan
The 3-foot-long gator was delivered to the zoo on Wednesday, one day after it was spotted on a residential street just west of Kansas State University.
Zoo director Scott Shoemaker describes the alligator as fairly young, since adults can grow up to 12 feet long.
It’s illegal to own alligators in Manhattan.
Shoemaker says the homeless one was probably an example of people not knowing what to do with an exotic pet as it grows larger.
