That's our super gator!

Those of you who read my post in May about Reggie the Gator, then our most famous local wild thing, may already know that he was captured shortly after that, and taken to the LA Zoo. I had nothing to do with it, but on the list of why I love LA: The motorcade was actually televised.

On August 10, he made his first public appearance at the zoo, all cleaned up and greeted by 150 cheering fans, according to this story in the LA Times.

Less than a week later, our remarkable Houdini gator has shown that he is no slave to celebrity! Read this story by Donna Littlejohn in today's Long Beach Press-Telegram -- "Reggie makes a moonlit run for freedom."
