Alligator Visits Louisiana Motel, Bites Guest

April 17, 2012

Authorities in Louisiana say a 6-foot alligator showed up at the front door of a Super 8 Motel outside Baton Rouge and bit a guest.

West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Mike Cazes tells The Advocate his office got the call about the alligator around 4 p.m. on April 11 in Port Allen.

Matt Marszal, the motel’s front desk clerk, says the gator bit one of the motel guests who tried to catch it before Animal Control workers showed up.

Marszal said the man was taken to the hospital. Once Animal Control workers arrived, he said the gator was subdued within five minutes.
