Is New Mexico the dumping ground for team mascots?

Be careful out there. There could be a baby alligator or tiger lurking somewhere in the state.

Police in Albuquerque reported earlier this month that they had received a tip that a juvenile tiger was being held captive in an apartment in the city.

When they checked the apartment, they didn’t find a tiger. They did, however, find a baby alligator and $40,000 in cash, illegal drugs and weapons.

Those who lived in the apartment have been arrested and the alligator has been turned over to an abandoned pet haven.

The search for the tiger, however, goes on. It is believed to weigh between 30 and 60 pounds, is thought to be less than a year old and might be anywhere in the state.

So if Florida, Auburn, LSU, Missouri or Memphis are currently short a live mascot, just check in New Mexico. We might just be able to help you out.
