RICHMOND, Va. -- A baby alligator was safely removed from a Richmond home a few weeks ago after the Richmond Animal Care and Control (RACC) received a complaint.
RACC worked with the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources to safely remove the alligator from the home, according to a recent Facebook post.
They were able to find the alligator a new home with a permitted rescue.
"Our jobs are NEVER boring!" RACC said in the Facebook post.
RACC also reminded citizens you're not supposed to have alligators as pets.
According to Virginia Code 29.1-569, it is a Class 2 misdemeanor to keep an American alligator -- or any exotic reptile not native to the Commonwealth -- in an enclosure they can escape or in no enclosure at all.
