Man kept four-foot-long alligator to woo women

275x250.jpgIf you were to make a list of things you thought owning would help you woo women, how long would you be going before you said "a live alligator"?

We're guessing quite a while… but that's because you're not Dewayne Yarbrough. He claims he kept a four-foot alligator for five years to impress women.

The 43-year-old from Chicago has been charged with possession of a dangerous animal after he was found to be keeping the snappy creature in a small tank.

He apparently told investigators - who found the animal in his kitchen - that he only fed it 10 live mice a month to keep it from growing too large.

While it appears he also told them he'd kept the gator because he hoped it would be a chick magnet, it's not clear how well it worked and helped him pull.
The gator is now being given to the Chicago Herpetological Society.
