MILWAUKEE - Folks at Jo-Don Farms are happy about the safe return of Boots the alligator.
Animal keepers say the gator climbed out of his cage last summer to head back to the Root River where he was found. But, an employee found him while fishing at the river.
"Boots was up sunbathing himself on the shore and he saw him,” said animal keeper Cody Zibung. “He was able to call in some other employees and they were able to surround him and catch him in the net.”
Right now, Boots is in a barn while he's being cared for.
