Swamp People, Bayou Pigeon should sound familiar. It's right down the road from Bayou Sorrel (you know, where Jr. & Willie live). As the name suggests, they do live on the bayou. It's not totally surprising to see a gator walking around but it's also not the norm. The very first time Dean brought me to his parents house we had to stop so an alligator could cross the road. I swear the whole time I was thinking "There really are places in Louisiana like in The Waterboy"! Dean swears that was the first & only time he'd ever seen that happen. Mrs Joyce & Mr Andrew's neighbor spotted Mr. Gator first. She called her daughter & told her to "do something". They called the Game Warden. Normally, Dean's dad would take care of such matters but he'd gone fishing so he missed all the fun.
The Game Warden catching the gator. He'll release it somewhere. Lucky for the gator Mr. Andrew was fishing. Otherwise, there would be either fried alligator or an alligator sauce piquante cooking. For those of you wondering & you know you are, yes I've eaten alligator before. Surprisingly, it isn't bad. It really does taste a lot like chicken.
