A ‘very Docile’ alligator went missing from a Wisconsin zoo. The gator apparently escaped from his enclosure at Doc’s Zoo. The zoo is located at Doc’s Harley Davidson in Bonduel, Wisconson. His name is Rex and he went missing Saturday. Rex has been at the zoo for 35 years and is described as typically very docile. Rex has severe arthritis in his jaw making it difficult for him to open his jaw. This makes him unlikely to harm anyone.

“He doesn’t go hunt for his food. He’s never had to do that, I don’t even think he knows how,” the owner told a local TV station. Four alligators, including Rex, live at the zoo. Animals at the zoo are typically exotic pets that were surrendered by owners who could no longer care for them.

The good news is Rex is back!

Update.....Rex is home safe!! ❤️We are heartbroken that on Saturday May 22nd, one of our alligators went missing from...
