In Kelso, Washington a woman opened her garage to find a 2 to 3-foot alligator staring back at her. The gator was left there by a friend who was renting an apartment from her. (The AP doesn't bother to explain this, as if people leave alligators around all the time.) To make matters worse, the alligator hadn't eaten in two weeks. His mood improved after Animal Control officials fed him raw chicken, and they plan to transfer him to a wildlife sanctuary.
