Alligator can greet Michigan restaurant patronsDecember 17, 2013 @ 4:10 pm
PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - A 4-foot long alligator named Wally will be allowed to greet patrons of a Michigan restaurant.
The City Council voted 4-2 on Monday to allow American alligators in its central business district.
Wally will greet guests at Cajun Gator. The restaurant is expected to open within the next week.
The Times Herald of Port Huron ( http://bwne.ws/19auzen) reports that Developer Larry Jones says there were "a lot more excited people than there are people in question" when the idea was floated.
Councilwoman Anita Ashford cast one of the votes against the proposal. She says she's uncomfortable with the idea of a live alligator in an eatery.
