2006_11_caiman.jpgThe alligator that was found in Brooklyn yesterday was successfully turned over to Animal Care & Control. The police found the 2-foot caiman alligator in a cardboard box with a shoelace tied and double-knotted around its jaw. Animal Care & Control warmed up the caiman and said it would go to licensed wildlife care or rehab facilities in Long Island or New Jersey. Oh, come on - at this point, the city should open up its own alligator zoo. They could reside in habitats that look like the sewer system.

If you check out the photos in this link, am New York revisits a May incident where two teeny alligators were abandoned at an auto repair shop - the mechanics tried to feed it fried chicken!
