A person claiming to be the owner of the Fond du Lac County gator came forward. J&R Aquatic Animal Rescue arranged to have Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary in Athens, Michigan take the animal. The owner agreed that would be best for the alligator. We have learned this alligator arrived in Athens, Michigan on Tuesday.
