The Advocate ^ | April 21, 2012

A 6-foot alligator showed up at the front door of a Super 8 Motel on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.

A motel employee said the alligator bit a guest.

About 4 p.m., the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about an alligator at the motel at 821 North Lobdell Highway, Sheriff Mike Cazes said.

The gator bit one of the motel guests who tried to catch it before Animal Control workers showed up, said Matt Marszal, the motel’s front desk clerk.

I’ve heard of lounge lizards, but a motel gator is a new one.

He should have gone to Holiday Inn.

Add a hndred gators carrying away screaming guests and you have the start of a grade B horror movie.

How dumb do you have to be to try to catch a 6-foot alligator? (I'm not talking about the real Swamp People here, I'm talking about someone who has probably never even seen a live gator before).

I guess the motel will have to include a new disclaimer: Not responsible for items left in automobiles. Not responsible for injuries sustained while trying to capture local wildlife.

At least he visited a motel, instead of a maul.

This is why motels insist on an ID. You ever try picking an alligator out of a lineup?

“I couldn’t believe something like that was out there,” said Marszal, who just moved to the area two months ago from Florida."

Where in Florida was this fool living? We have the finest gators on this planet!

Catching a gator is easy, you just grab it while it's swallowing a Yankee and distracted.

Massachusetts Yankees are best, they are fat and juicy.

The gator doesn’t have to run the 40; the 40 runs from him.
