WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Hanging an alligator foot from a dashboard apparently is not a good luck charm.

A Florida driver learned that the hard way when he was recently stopped in a Palm Beach County wildlife management area by two Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers who were checking for permits.

The commission says in a news release the officers noticed alligator parts scattered throughout the truck, including a foot sticking out of the dashboard.

After first denying it, the driver admitted that he had killed the gator a few days earlier out of season and without a permit. He was cited. His name was not released.
