  • Lil G: “Thomas Pynchon don’t know shit ’bout gators.”

Baby alligators are actually pretty cute, as it turns out, so this story is less “that’s kind of scary” and more “aww, cute” (though it’s really “the fucking idiots who buy and sell baby alligators should go to jail for a long time.”)

Lil G, we’ll call him, was turned in Sunday to the 88th precinct station house in Clinton Hill by a man claiming to have found him in a local park—police seem to have reason to doubt this story and think it was a pet who grew too big. Whatever the case, Lil G. needs a new home, and if you or someone you know is thinking of buying or selling an exotic animal as a pet, please don’t. Thanks.
