Erie County residents saw an unusual sight Monday night.
A small alligator was found outside of a home in Girard on Route 18 in a driveway.
The homeowners said they couldn’t believe what they were seeing. They said living in the country, animals often get dropped off near their property, but it’s the first time they’ve seen an alligator.
“Laying up against the tire, he said (Becky’s husband) there was an alligator and I didn’t believe him so I had to come out and I stood with my mouth open for probably a minute looking at it,” said homeowner Becky Wagner.
Animal control was called to handle the small reptile.
