Another Alligator Captured In Mid-Michigan Tuesday Morning
WILX.com reports that another alligator was seen on the loose in Mid-Michigan Tuesday morning.
This time, sheriff deputies in Livingston County were called to Oceola Township, northwest of Howell, around 4:20 AM Tuesday morning by a woman driving home from work. The caller said that the gator crossed the road in front of her.
When deputies arrived, they caught the two-foot-long alligator just off of the side of the road without incident. The gator is now at the Livingston County Animal Control Shelter.
But, if this is your pet alligator, you only have until 12:00 PM on Thursday, August 1 to claim your pet. After that, it will be transferred to the Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary in Athens, Michigan, near Battle Creek.
To claim the gator, call 517-546-2154.
This is the fourth alligator sighting in Mid-Michigan this summer. A gator was hit by a car in Eaton County last month, followed by another sighting in Jackson County the next week. Two weeks ago, another pet gator escaped its home twice in Owosso. And, just last week, a man in Tuscola County shot a gator that lunged at him while gathering fishing bait. Other encounters have been in Grand Rapids, Milford Township, and Macomb County
