Arrowhead Reptile Rescue began in 1991 and is operated by a network of foster homes and rehabilitators throughout the Cincinnati area. The rescue's mission is to help unwanted, sick, or injured reptiles, and the group is also open to helping amphibians. While the primary focus of the rescue is to rehabilitate wildlife, they also assist with captive reptiles who are in need of new homes.

"These guys get 12 feet long and live 75 years," says Damien Oxier of Arrowhead Reptile Rescue. It's possible a baby gator's previous owner didn't want to gamble on that, and decided a flush was better than a full house. "Flushed down the toilet is a pretty good guess at this point," Oxier says. The 10 inch reptile was found in a rack that pulls debris from raw waste water in Hamilton's Water Reclamation plant on River Road.

(FOX19) - Some call it the wild west of Ohio.

According to some animal advocates, the Buckeye state has some of the weakest laws in the country when it comes to owning exotic animals.

Authorities confirm 48 of them, including endangered Bengal tigers, were killed.
