CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Police and code enforcement officers responding to a complaint discovered dozens of animals - including an alligator in a cage and tortoises in the swimming pool - at a home in Clearwater.
    
Officials found the critters on Thursday.
    
Besides the gator and tortoises, animals found at the home included chickens, roosters and a pig.
