Exotic animal found in Sheboygan

Sheboygan Gator

SHEBOYGAN - Officials in Sheboygan County are investigating a rare find.

They found an alligator in a creek behind an area business.

Authorities captured the gator Sunday morning.

They used a "catch pole" to get control before taping its mouth shut. The animal was then turned over to the DNR.

Officials believe it was abandoned by a pet owner, and they are still looking for that owner.
