Petition to Return Albert the Alligator Reaches 113,000 Tony Cavallaro

Over 113,000 people have signed a petition calling for Albert the alligator to be returned to his owner, Tony Cavallaro. Albert, who is 34 years old, has been a loyal companion to Cavallaro for his entire life and has never harmed anyone. Despite the unconventional nature of keeping an alligator as a pet, Albert has been well cared for and lived peacefully with his owner for decades.

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the SPCA removed Albert from Cavallaro's home, citing concerns about public safety. However, Cavallaro insists that Albert poses no threat to anyone and has been properly cared for according to regulations. He has been devastated by the loss of his beloved pet and is fighting to have him returned.

The petition has garnered over 113,000 signatures in just a few days, showing widespread support for Albert and his owner. The community is rallying behind them, recognizing the unique bond that exists between the two. Many argue that separating them after so many years would be cruel and unjust.

While it's important to ensure the safety and well-being of all animals, it's equally important to consider each situation on a case-by-case basis. Albert's owner has demonstrated a commitment to providing him with a loving and caring home, and it's clear that Albert is a beloved member of their family.

As the court date approaches, supporters of Albert and his owner are hopeful that justice will prevail and that Albert will be allowed to return to the only home he's ever known. The outpouring of support through the petition is a testament to the strong bond between humans and animals, and it serves as a reminder that all creatures deserve to be treated with compassion and understanding.
