A Mertztown resident had a bit of an adventure this morning. Robert Hipp spotted a 3 foot-long alligator swimming in his outdoor fish pond. Hipp and his children managed to catch the gator, referred to as "Little Rocky" in the police release, and called State Police. The gator was taken to the Reading barracks.
State Police have contacted Lehigh Valley Zoo about taking possession of Little Rocky. Anyone who might be able to assist with the care of the gator is asked to contact State Police in reading, 610-378-4011.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
