"Jaxson" was a family pet, but Los Angeles Animal Services said she could still be dangerous. The gator was moved with the help of the L.A. Zoo on Wednesday.
The alligator, a 37-year-old female named Jaxson, had lived in the Van Nuys backyard for 36 years.
Jaxson's owner disputed that the alligator was a danger.
