Pet alligators forced to drink beer in video: Investigation underway

PHILADELPHIA -- The Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is investigating a video showing small, pet alligators being forced to drink beer and smoke cigarettes.

The Philadelphia group's director of humane law enforcement, Nicole Wilson, tells WTXF-TV (http://bit.ly/2vp4Pex) the group is trying to determine who made the video and whether they can be prosecuted for cruelty to animals.

A viewer offended by the Snapchat video brought it to the station's attention.

The station says it's been told the video was shot in the basement of a home in the city's Bustleton neighborhood.
