Alligators and Hot Tubs

While the two don’t seem to go hand in hand at all, sometimes the craziest things happen in the strangest of places.

Deputies in Vero Beach, FL, found an alligator in an extremely uncommon place. While handling a drug arrest warrant at the villain’s home, they discovered an alligator in the hot tub. After continuing with the arrest, they discovered that the man living in the home had actually had the alligator in his tub for about a year and had been feeding it chicken. The man was faced with charges for possession of an alligator without a permit. A Florida fish and wildlife officer took the necessary precautions and removed the alligator.

While it is not uncommon to hear about large reptiles coming in contact with humans, I believe it’s safe to say that we must use our common sense and do what is necessary to get them back to their natural habitat and out of our homes. Better safe than sorry!
