(Courier-Journal)   "Our initial thought is, if this is in fact an alligator, it may have been a situation where someone had it as a pet, and then they decided to release it. That is our most logical conclusion of how it could have gotten there"   (courier-journal.com) divider line

Not a repeat from 2021, 2020, 2019...

We seem to get at least one alligator story per year, here.

Was it Zack again? Zack's often the culprit in these out-of-place-alligator shenanigans.

It's easy to avoid them.  Just time when their mouths are closed or use the vine.

not only that but the reason seems to always be the same.

FTA: "had it as a pet, and it got bigger than they thought and then they decided to release it,"

how small did they think a full sized alligator would be? Have they ever seen an adult one?

Then again, most people wouldn't own an "pet" alligator to begin with.

It was probably a snapping turtle. They get big!

Send a frisbee guy in, if he comes back out, no alligator.

Someone might have told them it was a caiman. Not saying those should be pets, but are far more manageable and much smaller and lighter weight than an actual alligator

As southern areas get hotter, the range were alligators can beed both males and females is getting larger.  They aren't confined to areas like Florida because of the temperature, they are confined there because north and south of there and their babies are all either all male or all female.
