PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) -Journalists tend to find themselves in odd situations from time to time, but that’s usually while they are out in the field.

Normally, the confines of a radio studio provide a pretty good level of safety.

Well, not today.

Henry Kacprzyk, curator at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium, stopped into Studio K with Cliff, a four-foot North American alligator.

KDKA-AM’s Larry Richert and John Shumway, had a chance to pet Cliff, but Larry was far more afraid then John.

Watch the video below to see Larry’s reaction!
