SCANDIA, Minn. (WCCO) — A father and son in the northeast Twin Cities metro area will face charges after their alligators got loose.
The two small alligators named Bonnie and Clyde escaped from a home in Scandia last month.
DNR officers say they’ve killed one of the animals, while the other is still on the loose.
Their owners — William St. Sauver and William St. Sauver Jr. — now each face charges for keeping the wild, exotic animals.
Officials say they saw the gators on St. Sauver’s property several months ago, and warned them to get a permit then, but they reportedly never did.
