Alligator on the loose after being seen at Detroit apartment

2 gators found, 1 on the loose, 1 to be moved to Belle Isle Conservancy

DETROIT - Detroit Police say 2 alligators were found at a Detroit apartment complex Monday night.

One alligator was retrieved from the apartment complex located in the 8300 block of East Jefferson Street.

Before the catch, though, the alligator briefly got away, causing police and residents to run from the two foot reptile.

The other alligator left the complex and is believed to have gone into the Detroit River.

The retrieved alligator will be taken the Belle Isle Conservancy on Tuesday morning.

Police are unsure of where the gators came from.
