There Was An Alligator Loose In Montreal This Morning

Wait ... what?!
There Was An Alligator Loose In Montreal This Morning

Imagine you're strolling down the street heading home when you walk by an alley. You hear a noise so you turn your head and you see some something moving around on the ground. It's probably a cat or maybe a raccoon or something. NOPE - it's a fucking alligator!

Not exactly what you were expecting, but that's exactly what happened to a resident of Tétreaultville in the borough of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve on Tuesday night. The man immediately called the police and said he saw a large reptile in an alley near Ontario street.

When the cops got there, they cornered it using  garbage cans and called Berger Blanc who were better equipped to handle situation. They eventually managed to get the alligator into a cage.

Here's a dramatic re-enactment.

One thing's for sure, there's no shortage of weird animal owners in Montreal, some own pot belly pigs and some even own rats as pets

The owner, who apparently does exotic animal demonstrations for a living has no idea how the alligator managed to escape. But she is on her way to get the alligator back.

I don't know about you, but I think that you should only be allowed to own an alligator if you can manage not to let him escape. And if he does escape I'm not sure you should allowed to have it back.
