Alligator rescued from Chelmsford home
7:30am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
A SNAPPY discovery was made at a Chelmsford home in the form of a reptile related to alligators.
Officers from Essex Police, the RSPCA and Chelmsford Council seized a caiman from the bedroom of the property in Waterhouse Lane where it was being kept as a pet.
Following a search the reptile measuring between 4ft to 5ft and a native of Central or South America was discovered in a tank which was just 4ft long.
The reptile was confiscated and taken to a rehoming facility as the owner did not have the right licence to keep it.
