Alligator Limbs Found In Williamsburg, Brooklyn (PHOTOS)

Three alligator limbs with a "faint fishy smell" were found scattered along North 10th Street in Williamsburg recently, The New York Daily News reports.

There was no trace of the alligator's body or head in sight.

"Jungle Bob" Smith of Jungle Bob’s Reptile World in Long Island told The News that whoever may have owned the alligator-- which is illegal in New York without a permit-- possibly abandoned the reptile once it had grown too large to manage.

The limbs were discovered spread apart from each other. One was wedged between two rocks, one was on a car seat, and another was on a street grate.

Nearby Alligator Lounge has yet to comment on the find.

And let's all hope this isn't another art installation that just scares everyone.
