Early yesterday morning, a 25 year old woman named Ariel and her 22 year old friend Michael were involved in a traffic stop around 3:30, in Punta Gorda, for not stopping at a stop sign. They told the cops that they were trying to collect frogs & snakes from under the overpass.
They then searched the vehicle, finding 41 small turtles in a backpack, and when the officers asked her if she had anything else in the vehicle, she proceeded to pull an alligator out of her yoga pants, and put it in the back of the truck.
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission was called in to take over, and it's not known whether or not they are going to be charged. Read The Full Story Here
