Town Dealing With Alligators, Pythons

KSAL StaffSeptember 30, 2013

Hutchinson police have been dealing with some slimy creatures over the past few months, but not of the human kind.

The latest encounter was with a 5-foot-long alligator last week that was found in a wooden crate in a garage.

That reptile was taken to the Hutchinson Zoo, where it is being kept temporarily. A second, 2-foot-long alligator that was found earlier in the month was sent on Friday to Monkey Island, a nonprofit animal rescue in southwest Missouri.

Those findings came after a 4-foot-long ball python was found on a porch of a home July 30, and a similar snake was found dead a month later after being struck by a vehicle.

Police say it’s illegal to own pythons or alligators in the city.
