POINTE COUPEE PARISH, LA — An angry reptile caused a ruckus in Pointe Coupee Parish.
A 7-foot alligator tried to walk across LA-77 just outside of Livonia this morning.
The gator didn't want to budge, so deputies had to come and get him.
The road had to be shut down for about 30 minutes before a trained professional was able to tie him up and hoist him into the back of his truck before releasing him back into the wild.
