Authorities Remove Pet Alligator from Boalsburg Home

By Jenn Miller

In today’s weird news department, authorities removed a pet alligator from a Boalsburg home over the weekend.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission notified State College police about the pet alligator in the 100 block of Honeysuckle Drive after officials discovered an ad on CraigsList advertising the pet for sale.

The alligator is five feet long, police say.

Police say the owner was attempting to sell the pet through the classified ad website.

Concerned the owner might resort to releasing the animal in the woods, authorities went to the home to remove the alligator.

Authorities arranged for Chris Robinson from Robinson’s Exotic Animals in Julian to take the alligator into custody.

Police say owning an alligator as a pet is legal.
