ST. CHARLES PARISH, La. (WGNO) — Deputies at the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office can now add “gator wrangler” to their resume after authorities responded to not one, but two calls for service involving alligators over the weekend.
The sheriff’s office says both calls were made Sunday. According to the SCPSO Facebook page, Sgt. Mikel Melton and Cpl. Christopher Baird were called to the Ormond area of Destrehan, then near the Winn-Dixie in Luling.
