2 small alligators found in Detroit home's backyard

DETROIT – Two small alligators were found Thursday during a police raid at a home in the 1200 block of Liebold Street in Detroit. 

A man at the house tried to flee officers by jumping out a second-story window. He was hurt and transported to Detroit Receiving Hospital. 

Along with the alligators, police found multiple pit bulls going in and out of the home. 

On Wednesday, Animal Control found an alligator behind a home on Strathmoor Street. It was about 2 and 1/2 feet long.
