Moron Kept Alligator Because 'Chicks Dig It'

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Illinois man says he kept a 4-foot alligator in his home because `chicks dig it.`

Dewayne Yarbrough, 42, of Ford Heights, said he kept the animal in a small tank and fed it just once a month to keep its size down, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.


Police arrested Yarbrough Thursday after the Cook County Sheriff`s animal crimes unit received a tip he was keeping the alligator in his home."


You might expect an 18-year-old kid to be under the misguided impression that "chicks dig alligators", but this moron is 42-freaking-years-old.

Yarbrough has kept this poor creature trapped in a small tank for five years, feeding it only twice a month to keep its size down. This creep has been charged with possession of a dangerous animal, he should be charged with animal cruelty as well.

I pray that this demented fool will be kept in a small prison cell for five years, and that his cellmate will be a huge brute who will make him his wife.
