Drumheller reptiles get new owners

Fred the alligator has left Drumheller, Alberta, for a temporary home in Ontario. In time, all the alligators, crocodiles and caimans from the Drumheller zoo at the centre of an Alberta SPCA investigation will go to an outdoor facility in South Carolina.

Those crocodilians were among approximately 55 reptiles that the Drumheller zoo owner voluntarily surrendered on February 12, 2015, for transport to two facilities in Ontario. An additional 138 of the Drumheller zoo’s reptiles and amphibians were in protective custody with the Alberta SPCA until February 17, 2015, when the 10-day hold period set out in the Animal Protection Act expired.
