'Gator Sighting

While 'gators are synonymous with Louisiana, (thanks a lot "Swamp People") they're rarely spotted in New Orleans. So, the recent sightings in the Industrial Canal and Mississippi River have been a bit disconcerting for city folk. LA Dept. of Fisheries and Wildlife Alligator Expert (great title!), Noel Kinler, says there are about 1.5 million 'gators in the state and "sometimes they show up in unusual places." [NOLA Defender]
