(Newser) – It was an odd day for one Alaska animal control officer who took a call about an alligator outgrowing its bathtub, the AP reports. According to KTUU, a Wasilla resident called 911 this week after realizing that the more than 4-foot-long alligator named Allie couldn't live in a tub anymore. Rescue group Valley Aquatics took Allie in. Valley Aquatics owner Sheridan Perkins says Allie is a 3-year-old American alligator. Perkins says she has thought about re-homing Allie in Florida.
