PAULINE, La. - Flooding displaced a number of southeast Louisiana residents Wednesday, including a curious alligator in St. James Parish.

News crews from WWL-TV said the alligator was in a parking lot near where they were filming, swimming around in the floodwater.

State wildlife officials said people should not feed any wild alligators they come across, even though it's not illegal in the state. They said feeding alligators can cause them to come back to populated areas looking for food, becoming a nuisance as they lose their fear of people.

More information about nuisance alligators can be found on the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries website.
