From Hold My Drink And Watch This today, Metairie, Louisiana residents recently received the shock of their lives after a 7-foot alligator crawled out of a storm drain following heavy rains. The drain is located behind an elementary school. No classes were in session due to Spring Break. Several residents lassoed the gator by its neck before tying it to a nearby pole. Wildlife wranglers taped the gator's mouth shut before relocating it to another area.
