A Pennsylvania man is getting a lot of attention for his unusual emotional support animal, which he recently brought to a senior living facility. Joie Henney walked Wally, his pet alligator, into SpiriTrust Lutheran Village in York, Pennsylvania last week to show him off to the elderly residents. Wally, who is over four feet long and has a mouth full of teeth, is kept on a leash like a dog, which is exactly what Henney compares him to. He insists, “He’s just like a dog. He wants to be loved and petted.” He says Wally is a calm alligator and has never tried to bite anyone. (Fox News)
