AVONDALE -- A man walking a 3-foot alligator on a leash was stopped by police Tuesday night.
The SPCA came to the intersection of Burnet and Forest Avenues and took away the gator.
The man was cited for violating a city law that prohibits owning exotic pets. He apparently had been warned over the weekend.
The SPCA will hold the animal until a judge decides what to do with it. It could end up in a zoo.
