Alligator can greet Michigan restaurant patrons

PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - A 4-foot long alligator named Wally will be allowed to greet patrons of a Michigan restaurant.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports that the City Council voted 4-2 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.

Developer Larry Jones has said 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 not comfortable with the idea of a live alligator in an eatery.
