Scandia, Minn. alligator owner dies in car crash

Posted: Updated:
SCANDIA, Minn. (KMSP) -

 A Scandia, Minn. man convicted of keeping exotic animals after his alligator went missing last year has died in a single car crash.

Washington County sheriff's officials responded to a single car crash on Sunday before 10 p.m. and discovered a car on fire in the 12200-block of 228th Street North in Scandia. William St. Sauver, 31, was the only occupant in the vehicle and he died at the scene. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.

St. Sauver was convicted of a petty misdemeanor after his alligator went missing in Goose Lake in August 2013. St. Sauver's two alligators -- Bonnie and Clyde -- ended up in the lake and he claimed someone took them from their pen at his home and dumped them into the lake. Minnesota DNR warden shot Clyde, but Bonnie was apparently found a month later. St. Sauver has also been cited for over 25 traffic violations in Washington County.
