No, You Can’t Keep a Pet Alligator in the City


Cops busted a Brooklyn couple for keeping in their Gravesend apartment a three-foot-long alligator, an animal that's prohibited in the city, if you didn't know. Along with the reptile, police acting on a search warrant discovered two loaded handguns and one loaded shotgun, plus unidentified controlled substances, DNAinfo reports. Still worse, police sources say the alligator "didn't look very good." It's possible the gator was strung out on drugs, but more likely is that the couple had starved it, as police suspect.
