An alligator was brought to a senior center as an “emotional support” animal. Fox News reports:
When you think of emotional support animals, cold-blooded alligators probably aren’t the first thing that comes to mind.
But Wally, a 3-year-old, 4.5-feet-long reptile, plies his trade doing exactly that, and earlier this week, took some time out of his busy schedule to pay a visit to a senior living facility in Pennsylvania and offer some comfort.
His owner, Joie Henney, took Wally to SpiriTrust Lutheran Village in York, Pennsylvania, on Monday, FOX 13 reported.
A few residents were hesitant to get close to Wally but Henney encouraged them to get to know the friendly reptile.
No accidents have been reported so far but it remains one of the strangest activities you could see at a senior center.
