VIDEO: Goodbye, Reggie

The morning after the elusive Lake Machado alligator Reggie was captured and taken to his new home at the L.A. Zoo, I visited with the man who knew him best. Fred Dowell is his name, and he's been on the case since Reggie first appeared nearly two years ago. Dowell told me he doesn't buy the reports that there's another gator lurking beneath the surface of Lake Machado. Watch the video for our full conversation.
