(CNN) -The Michigan Humane Society is now the new home of this five-foot-long alligator.

Someone dumped it on a street in Detroit on Thursday night.

A man helped rescue the reptile after neighbors say they saw someone toss it out of a truck.

The Humane Society picked up the animal on Friday and took it to its facility that handles exotics.
