SEE YA LATER: Gator shows up at Fred's Truck Stop on Nicholson Drive
ST. GABRIEL - High river levels are sending critters into parking lots, apparently.
Police in St. Gabriel were stunned when they received a call at Fred's Truck Stop on Nicholson Drive late Monday night regarding a rogue alligator. The gator was first found in the back parking lot, where many truckers park their vehicles for the night.
Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries is on the scene. A towel was placed on the gator's head for... precautionary reasons. But the scrappy reptile shook it off shortly after.
Officials were able to wrangle the gator just before 10 p.m.
