Florida woman could be forced to give up pet gator

Mary Thorn has had the 15-year-old gator named ‘Rambo,’ for 11 years, but now, she could lose it.

According to Florida Wildlife Commission, alligators must be kept on 2.5 acres of property if the reptile is over 6 feet. The gator lives inside Thorn’s Lakeland home. Rambo has his own bedroom and Thorn dresses him in clothes every day.

FWC said it’s investigating the incident.
