Alligator Found on Venice Street
No, it wasn't the infamous Reggie, it was a three-foot alligator found in the front yard of a Venice home. "Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Station responded to a report of an alligator seen crawling into the bushes at a home in the 200 block of 4th Avenue near Rose Avenue about 1:20 a.m., an LAPD sergeant said," CBS2 reports.
This is the second alligator rescue in less than six months, says LA Animal Services who also note that the reptiles are a restricted species in California and require a State Permit for possession. The gator, reported to be in good health, will be transferred to the Southwest Herpetology Society where it will be put in a proper environment.
