Someone broke into Glen Day's New Zealand home and made off with a treasured family heirloom: the alligator his great-grandmother shot 80 years ago.
"We have some old photos of my great-grandmother out on hunting trips, riding on the back of an elephant through the jungle," he said. "They would hunt for tigers and alligators. Of course, it is not the sort of thing we would do today but the alligator has sentimental value and is part of our family history." [Link]
