The tenant, Sean Casey, said he’d owned the alligator for four years and named it Catfish. He called the reptile “a big cuddly lizard.”

A spokesman for the city’s Neighborhood and Housing Services Department says Kansas City doesn’t allow homeowners to have alligators.

Catfish will be temporarily housed at the Monkey Island Rescue and Sanctuary in nearby Greenwood. The snakes and rabbit were taken to an animal shelter.
