Not a new story but worth repeating. File this away so if you ever have neighbor trouble, you can be glad you weren’t these people’s neighbor.
South Philly Row Home Strange Place for a Gator

You meet lots of characters in South Philly but nothing quite like a seven-foot-long alligator named Kirt.
Animal officers removed the seven-footer from a home on the 1300-hundred block of Warnock Street Tuesday, according to the Pennsylvania SPCA.
Some neighbors knew about the gator living in the row home but nothing was done until someone tipped off the SPCA about the large reptile.
When officials went into the home they found the gator living in a basement with a converted pond fully equipped with a pumping system.
