A Phillies fan who has an emotional support alligator… yes, you heard the right… was not allowed into Citizens Bank Park as his team hosted the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Joie Henney, of Jonestown, Pennsylvania, wanted to bring WallyGator with him but only service animals are allowed.
Emotional support animals aren’t in that category.
The gator has a big following on socials, but that also doesn’t count.
Henney says Wally was found in a pond at Disney World, but couldn’t be relocated so he took him home.
When Henney fell into a deep depression, WallyGator cuddled him and that’s how the critter became an emotional support animal.
Wally is leash-trained and lets strangers pet him.
