Detroit Officials Gets SCALY Surprise as They Serve Eviction Papers

One of the least enviable part of any court official’s job has to be getting involved with the eviction process, but many have never experienced anything like what occurred in Detroit recently.

That’s because officials found themselves face-to-face with one of the world’s most dangerous creatures, all while attempting to evict a local resident. 

Michigan court officials could not believe their eyes when they went to evict a family from a Detroit home and stumbled upon a family of alligators inside. Officials were shocked when they stepped into the home and found one adult gator and three baby gators.

Officials immediately called Detroit Animal Care and Control to give a hand removing the family of alligators with the three baby Gators inside a medium-sized tank filled with water.

Video from FOX 2 shows Animal Control lugging the tank with the three small alligators swimming around. Another set of workers are seen carrying the grown alligator outside with the reptile’s snout tied up to protect workers.

Oddly, the situation was only slightly running afoul of the law.

While it is not illegal to have an alligator as a pet in Michigan, it is illegal in Detroit. It is unclear whether the tenant was aware of the city law.

“A lot of times, people can obtain an alligator without knowing the proper laws,” said Jovan Stacks, a federally licensed exhibitor and owner of 1 Exotic Zoo.

Animal control was soon called to the residence, and the gators will likely find themselves in the care of a licensed animal keeper in the coming days.
