Alligator Invasion in Queens

The urban legend is true. There ARE alligators living in NYC’s sewers. Gothamist reports that yesterday during the torrential down pours an 18 inch babeh gator appeared near a storm drain in Astoria. Police are reluctant to admit that the critter came from the sewers, and suggested rather that someone had dropped it out of a car. Sure. I travel with loose alligators in the front seat to ditch during rain storms all the time, I don’t know about you. I think we know the truth here. Urban legends are real, and this time there’s proof. Bystanders at Newton Ave and 29th street took cell phone pics, and documented the event, it’s not just something you heard happened to your cousin’s ex-girlfriend’s sister-in-law’s baby sitter. Don’t worry for the little fella though, police have turned him over to a licensed reptile rehabilitation center. Check out the full story here.

now i'm trying to think about urban legends here in LA... haha.
and i agree, that baby gator definitely did not fall from someone's car. that is just too weird and obviously not true.
