A man who police say placed a 3-foot alligator on top of another man in Connecticut as part of an extortion attempt has pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

Did he bring the gator with him from Texas to Connecticut? Inquiring minds etc.

That's just being neighborly in Florida :)

Maybe it's just me but, if someone kidnappd me and only asked for $800 I'd be a little insulted. I'm worth at least a couple of thousand dollars.

Cindy, I know I would ask a lot more than that for you.

I would say this dude needed to buy a copy of "Kidnapping for Dummies."
Expenses alone such as gas, duct tape, motel room and alligator rental will eat up any profit on an $800 ransom demand.

Hey, as uncomfortable as the alligator is, they do not have money. Try extorting money from "the man"....

Poor gators gonna need counseling and or therapy...

A 15ft gator would have gotten him a lot more money.

Whatever happened to tarantulas?

He should have just killed the alligator to make boots and then sold them for $800.

Weaponized Alligators: I wonder wear you get a holster for one.

Doesn't the Cajun Mafia put an alligator's head in your bed?
