It's not April 1st yet, is it? How does an alligator get to Burr Oak, MI on its own? It doesn't. Some exotic-animal ninny "set it free" when it became unmanageable. Mr. Dumbjohn, is not "a little extreme," he's rather brave considering he had kids to protect and had only a blunt instrument to work with.
If this story had a real byline (vs. "staff writer"), it might have gotten an entirely different treatment.

Well since gators are not native to Michigan I am outraged because you have these moronic ppl that think its so cool to have a baby aligator just to realize a few months later they grow up to be big gators. Well DUHHH!!!! I think a call to Fish, Game and Wildlife or Animal control would have been in order. Gator was only 3 feet and would have been fairly easy to trap
