FWC: Man thought having a pet gator was cool
James Gill Facing Felony
James Gill, 45, of Naples caught an alligator in his backyard, and thought it would be cool to keep it as a pet. He put the young gator in a fish tank in his 3-year-old son’s room. That’s extremely dangerous, even little gators have 80 sharp teeth. FWC served a warrant, and charged him with a felony for illegal possession of an alligator. Gill reportedly told officers that it was stupid that it was a felony, because there are millions of them. He may be right, but it’s still against the law, and extremely dangerous.
