Contrary to what some Tennesseans believe, there is no such thing as a "meth-gator."
The Loretto, Tennessee police department created the character of the critter as a humorous illustration of the dangers of flushing drugs and other substances down the toilet.
Of course, some people didn't read closely and thought this was a real problem. So the police department updated their Facebook page to set the record straight.
Now the department has decided to cash in on the notoriety, as they plan to launch a web site and sell Meth-Gator merchandise with proceeds going to a charity that deals directly with children affected by drug use.
Of course, there's always that person who gets it wrong....
Alabama had the methed-up squirrel, not the meth gator.
