Mexico mayor weds alligator, animal first baptized


(WIAT) — Many cultures enjoy traditions that outsiders struggle to understand.

For instance, in Mexico a small town mayor was recently married to an alligator. But, before it happened, the alligator was first baptized.

Fishermen believe the gator is a princess and the wedding ritual will bring plenty of fish, shrimp and other seafood for them to catch along the pacific coast.

Following the marriage ceremony, the gorgeous gator is referred to as the “wife” of the mayor.
