Last Chance for Animals Wants "Reggie" the Alligator Released to the Wild

Last Chance for Animals Wants "Reggie" the Alligator Released to the Wild

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/25/07 -- Last Chance for Animals (LCA), a national non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, wants pressure put on the L.A. Zoo to release "Reggie" to the wild or to a rescue organization that specializes in alligators.

"We need to do what is best for this alligator. Reggie should not spend the rest of his life in a tiny enclosure at the Los Angeles Zoo. I sympathize with Reggie's fans; alligators are amazing creatures -- that is why we want Reggie to be given a chance to live a life as close to normal as possible. Of course, Reggie should never have been a pet in the first place and I hope the public takes a lesson from this, but now Reggie deserves a life of freedom. Captivity is not the answer."

Chris DeRose, Founder and President, Last Chance for Animals

Reggie the alligator, the 6 1/2 foot long reptile, which spent two years hiding out in Harbor Regional Park's Lake Machado, was captured Thursday. According to the zoo, Reggie is in quarantine for up to three months at the zoo, and will eventually be introduced to the other alligators. Reggie was an illegal pet allegedly tossed into the 50-acre lake by a former policeman when it got too big.

LCA is offering to pay for Reggie's relocation to freedom.

Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "missing link" for transition to cloud utilization.
