Named after the GnR frontman no less.

"Dangerous?" More people are killed by dogs than by alligators each year, but dogs aren't illegal.

Maybe Drew can adopt him and make him the Fark mascot.

While in rehab, another alligator named Slash tried to visit him, but security turned him away, even though he had a ticket.

You can own a semi-automatic assault rifle, but not an alligator.

Where's Steve Erwin when you need him?

The alligator is going to star in Lethal Weapon 12.

"Average" Kentuckians are not allowed to own alligators, but then if you have an alligator, then you're not average are you? Case dismissed. Give the gator a chicken, good boy.

I can understand wanting to own a gator - they're soooo cuuuute!

Dogs kill people yearly...put em all to sleep!

Only in Kentucky...Or maybe Florida.

Let's just say the Southern US.
Whatever, why would you want an alligator? It sits still for hours, only to snap something in half when eating it.

The love and affection the thing must give its owner.
