(KMOV) -- Workers at the World Bird Sanctuary are caring for an alligator that was found in Jefferson County.

The three-year-old Florida alligator was found in a creek in DeSoto, Missouri.

Experts say the alligator was being kept as a pet and when the owners could no longer care for it, the alligator was dumped in the creek.

The World Bird Sanctuary will release the alligator to reptile experts who will take care of it.
