An alligator in Wisconsin?

This is the claim being made:

Oh, I can’t believe she’s never going camping again because she saw an alligator! Personally, I like running across this sort of animal.

I hope there is an actual scientific investigation of this. I’d love to know if this creature could possibly have wintered over. This is a rather large beast to haven not been in the wild for about a year, though I suppose it is possible that someone fed it up in their basement.

    Many years ago, in one of the two Kansas Citys, a fire station had to give up their potbelly pig mascot because of city ordinance banning pigs.

    I heard one of the affected firemen on a talk radio show. He said they had been called by a woman to come and devise a fire rescue plan for the alligators and crocodiles she kept in her basement. He said they did so, and found several crocodilians in the 6 – 8 ft range. It was perfectly legal for the woman to keep them. The firemen did their duty and devised a rescue plan.

    Why did they shoot it? So stupid, why not transport it to a zoo, or somewhere it could be safe. Maybe they should do that in Florida too, hell why not just shoot everything that could possibly hurt someone. So dumb…..

    Look another gator found in Wisconsin, last year. Crossing the road around the same size as this one. But, this one they didn’t shoot for absolutely no reason.

    I swore I saw a baby alligator up in the upper Dells of Wisconsin when i got into to the water to go kayaking off our property. We have had this house for 10yrs and I never saw anything like it before. It was in about 2ft of water when it swam past me.
