NEW LEBANON, N.Y. (AP) — A 39-inch-long alligator that went missing last month on the eastern New York property of its owner has been found in a pond.

Animal control officials in Columbia County tell Albany's WNYT-TV ( ) that Kobe the gator was found Wednesday night in the pond in the yard of his owner, Rhonda Leavitt of New Lebanon.

State police announced two weeks ago that Kobe has escaped from a pen at Leavitt's rural property, located 25 miles southeast of Albany.

She says on the website "Rhonda's Reptiles" that she rescues lizards, snakes, turtles and other creatures in need of a home and rents them out for events like birthday parties.
