Pennsylvania Alligator Shot

Some might cite it as proof positive that global warming is now. Others might simply say a Luzerne County resident got tired of feeding rats to a growing pet. Pennsylvania Alligator Shot -- Some might cite it as proof positive that global warming is now. Others might simply say a Luzerne County resident got tired of feeding rats to a growing pet.

Anyway, a 3-foot long alligator was shot and killed by a Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission officer after two fisherman found it in Harris Pond in Sweet Valley.

As we know Luzerne County, our bet is that a resident got tired of feeding rats to a growing pet.

  1. People who are sensitive (perhaps overly so) to the treatment of animals may get mad that the alligator was shot. But that’s misplaced anger. They should get angry at the person that brought it to PA in the first place, and who set it loose. I have never understood this need for “exotic” pets; it seems a tad narcissistic to me. “Look at me, I’m different, I don’t have a run-of-the-mill dog or cat, or an insipid hamster. I have reptile that can grow to large size and kill me, eventually. I’m cool!”

      1. What a waste. Should have butchered it and grilled it.
        Delicious!

        Here’s a recipe from the Louisiana Crawfish Co.

        Ingredients

        5 Pound(s) alligator tailmeat
        lemon wedges
        12 Tablespoon(s) paprika
        6 Tablespoon(s) garlic powder
        3 Tablespoon(s) salt
        3 Tablespoon(s) white pepper
        3 Tablespoon(s) oregano, crushed
        3 Tablespoon(s) black pepper
        2 1⁄2 Tablespoon(s) thyme
        1 Tablespoon(s) cayenne pepper

        Steps

        To make seasoning mix, combine paprika, garlic powder, salt, white pepper, oregano, black pepper, thyme, and cayenne pepper in a jar with tight fitting lid
        Shake well to combine
        Mixture may be stored up to 3 months
        When ready to cook, gut gator tailmeat into 1/2″ cubes
        Roll each cube in 1 tablespoon of the mixture
        Cook over high heat on an outdoor barbecue grill or under the oven broiler for 4-6 minutes, or until gator tailmeat is white and firm to the touch
        The seasoning mixture will coat up to 24 (4oz.) servings of gator tail
        Serve warm with lemon wedges
