Re: Stop dumping your unwanted pets!

A two-foot long alligator (Alligator sp.) was found in Jamaica Pond, located in Boston, Massachusetts. As reported at (and by every other news source in Massachusetts), disbelieving Animal Rescue League workers arrived at the pond after receiving several reports, and were surprised to see the gator swimming around in the water. The alligator has already been caught (luckily one of the workers was from Louisiana :-) and the workers stated that it would not be euthanized. Alligators are illegal to own in Massachusetts without a license, and even them may only be kept for "scientific, research, display or educational purposes."
