Madison Township medics were responding to a medical emergency.
After spotting the reptile, they notified authorities.
The Department of Agriculture confirmed the homeowner did not possess an exotic animal permit.
The animal was taken to an animal facility owned by the Department of Agriculture where he was checked out by veterinarians and will be transported to an alligator sanctuary in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, much more suitable habitat for the American Alligator.
