Police do not know where the animal came from at this time, but SPCA said it was not especially unusual to see exotic animals in Greater Cincinnati. Typically, they say, those animals are pets. The caiman was treated for minor injuries, and SPCA now hopes its owner will step forward to collect it.
"We will hold the animal for a potential owner to claim," SPCA Cincinnati wrote on Facebook. "If not claimed, we will seek assistance for placement from local rehabilitators."
