Alligators in Pittsburgh?
A couple of small gators turned up in Pittsburgh of all places. Where Will They Go? The Fate Of Pittsburgh’s Recently Discovered Alligators.
First came Frankie off the shoreline of the Mon River on the Southside. Then came Chomp the Magic Gator (names given by Humane employees) in all his five feet of glory from Beechview. Then came the call to Humane Animal Rescue’s Sarah Shively on Saturday night.
The latest one is small. Couple of feet. (As yet, he remains unnamed.) The video is entertaining if not particularly informative. (State of the news media today.)
And why is the London media so enthralled with gators? Amazon worker returns from a night shift to find 6ft long alligator blocking the doorway to his Florida home.
‘When you get home from a 10 hour overnight shift at 6am to find THIS sitting on your doorstep,’ he wrote, alongside the hashtags #floridalife and #floridapets.
