Reggie returns


first_imgTHERE’S something about a sequel that’s nigh impossible for L.A. to resist. Add in the always-favorite animal angle, and it’s a surefire hit. That must be why the return of Reggie the alligator (actually, he’s a caiman) on Monday after an 18-month absence has all of Los Angeles – not to mention the rest of the nation – atwitter. Collectively, we always suspected that the predator didn’t die from ingesting soda cans or pollution in the murky, harbor-adjacent Lake Machado. He was too tough for that. Now that the large alligator’s presence has been confirmed, authorities must now come up with a solid Reggie plan of action. If he is to stay in L.A. – as he and his many fans clearly want – then the city must develop safety precautions that keep both park visitors and Reggie himself as safe as possible. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
