Alligators in the News

It’s the time of year that gators are on the move.

Video of a 9-foot gator being captured in Florida. ‘Massive’ Florida alligator does ‘death roll’ during ‘wrestling match’ with officers near school bus stop.

Gators moving north? (I blame Global Warming.) Heavy rain and floods send a 9-foot alligator fleeing into Arkansas farmland.

But after rainstorms in Missouri and Iowa caused nearby rivers to rise, a family in Northeast Arkansas stumbled upon a 9-foot alligator far from its natural habitat — in their rice field.

They weren’t able to catch it, and it escaped into a wooded area.

Louisiana gets in on the gator act. YIKES: Alligator spotted on the beach in Grand Isle.

And a relatively small gator in Texas. Gator ‘rescued’ from train tracks in Texas town.
