(NBC New York)   If you're tired of caring for your 5-foot-long pet alligator, the correct next step is to give it to the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals rather than face criminal charges   (nbcnewyork.com) divider line

"I can't imagine anybody sitting on a couch with an alligator curled up on their lap. It doesn't make sense.""

It's just a shame when people are so ignorant about animals

fun fact : Massive abdominal wounds are actually nature's kisses...

Farking an alligator is way way better than what the folks call  making love in statten island.

It would be cool to have an alligator but you have to think these things through. Where would I put it? How would I care for it? How would I transport it to the vet when it got big?

That's why I don't have a parrot because I think parrots are much cooler, but at this point in my life it would outlive me and then who would care for it when I'm gone?  Also, they require care and I've seen parrots that haven't been cared for and it's not a pretty site.

I got a cat instead.  She's low maintenance and still has beautiful plumage.

So I shouldn't drop off my used alligators at the duck pond? Good to know, good to know.

"Originally, they claimed they didn't know anything about an alligator. But then when we gave them the choice of either turning it in and facing civil penalties or having us get a search warrant and facing criminal charges they made the phone call and said we have your alligator come get it,"

There was another stranger incident back in 2005 where some guy called Anthony Barone got busted for having two leopards in the basement and his wife chained to the bannister. He also owned a tattoo parlor and was accused of being a bad parent to his four kids 2,4,7,8 . Another Long Island father of the year. https://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/31/nyregion/at-long-island-home-police-find-abuse-claim-and-2-leopards.html

Do Rudy Guiliani and Sean Hannity technically count as pets?

That's awful. An alligator is for life, not just for Christmas.

WTF? They gave a press conference with the alligator crammed into a too-small box sitting on a conference room table. Where's the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals when you need them?

a ridiculous movie, obviously.  but also quite watchable.

my favourite exchange:

Sheriff Hank Keough [hick]:I... I never heard of a crocodile crossing an ocean.
Hector Cyr [smartass scientist]:Well, they conceal information like that in books.

You're supposed to give it to Captain Jack.

/still have Tony Dow on my mind :(

It would have been nice if the people who owned the gator had had a Loki-gator moment before turning it over to the SPCA.
