Creep Kept Alligator in his Basement for 26 Years

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police removed a six-foot alligator that had reportedly been living in a Chicago man`s basement for 26 years.


An appliance repairman discovered the alligator after hearing sounds that led him to its cage. He then took pictures of the reptile and then alerted police to its presence.

Alligators can be legally owned with a permit, but Price admitted to purchasing the reptile illegally when it was a baby at a swap meet in Kankakee.

Charles Price will go to court on a misdemeanor charge of unlawful possession of an endangered species."


To keep a six-foot alligator confined to a basement for 26 years is an unspeakable act of animal cruelty.

It`s an outrage that this sadistic monster has only been charged with a misdemeanor charge of unlawful possession of an endangered species. He should be given a taste of his own medicine and sentenced to a long prison term.

Prices` neighbors should ostracize him, and PETA should picket his house indefinitely. We must not tolerate animal cruelty!
