According to the BBC, those crazy kids down at Machado Lake finally brought in Reggie the Renegade Alligator. Witness this breathless account:
On Tuesday, after a number of unsuccessful attempts to catch Reggie, a team led by Jay Young and a crew of handlers from Colorado finally succeeded in their quest.
“He put up a good fight,” Mr Young said. “We’re so excited right now.”
Mr Young said that the breakthrough came when he spotted the alligator resting on the shores of Machado Lake, in the south of the city.
His brother, Noah Young, crept up on the animal and managed to slip a rope around his neck.
Reggie will be moved to the Los Angeles Zoo, where he is expected to taunt the other alligators for being “pussies.”
