BIG SPRING - The alligator on the loose in Big Spring has been found.

A four foot long caiman alligator briefly caused concern when it went missing on Monday.

Authorities say the pet's owner contacted animal control.

It's still unclear how the gator got away, but the owner seems to think someone may have tried to steal it.

The owner reportedly had the permits to have the animal, but failed to comply with the city's ordinance on keeping an exotic animal at a home.
