The Region

A two-foot-long alligator found on a conveyor belt on a potato farm southeast of Bakersfield is back home in his bathtub. The reptile was found by workers at Porter Farms who were clearing potatoes off a conveyor belt bringing the spuds into the building where they are cleaned before being shipped to market. "There he was, big as life, riding on the conveyor belt along with the spuds," said one of the women who discovered the creature. The owners turned out to be a family living near the farm. They said the gator got out of his outdoor bathtub when it overflowed.
