Here’s a new one: Why did the alligator cross the interstate?

On Sunday, Louisiana State Police and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to several calls about an alligator trying to cross Interstate 10 at Power Boulevard in Metairie, State Police said on its Facebook page.

Law enforcement captured the 7-foot alligator safely and turned it over to Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries unharmed.

This gator was captured weeks after more than one sighting of a gator in nearby Kenner along a drainage canal by the Esplanade mall.
