Darnell Dockett Receives Letter From PETA, Has An Idea For A Response

Darnell Dockett has an alligator named Nino. We know this because Dockett took to his Twitter account, a must-follow if there ever was one, to show off his new pet and narrate its life. As you can imagine, the adventures of Darnell and Nino is an entertaining webisode for everyone. That is, everyone except PETA.

PETA was unhappy with Dockett and felt his ownership of a gator was some form of animal cruelty. Dockett responded last week by reminding fans that Nino is being treated like a king, dining on only the finest steak from Ruth Cris and the most delicious waffles from a nearby waffle house.

But PETA persisted, sending Dockett a letter on Monday. He clearly wasn't happy, and took to Twitter to discuss the latest developments in the Nino case with the world.
