Alligator Rescued from McCracken Road Home

A McCracken Roadman was cited, Dec. 4,  for having an unregistered four-foot alligator in his home. Garfield Heights Animal Control Officer Ed Jamison said a complaint from a neighbor prompted a visit to the home where the alligator was located in an aquarium in the basement. The alligator was taken to the Ohio Department of Agriculture in Reynoldsburg and is expected to be transported to an alligator rescue farm in South Carolina. The 36-year-old owner was issued citations for violating state and local laws regarding the possession of dangerous animals.
