Another Drew County Gator Found Monday MorningAugust 24th, 2011 by Joe Burgess
The gator’s presence prompted a phone call to the Monticello Police Dispatch, who sent a Drew County Sheriff’s deputy to the scene.
The gator was safely taken into custody by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission.
Another alligator, estimated to be 9 feet in length, was captured by AG&F officers in May, while trying to cross HWY 165, south of Dermott, in the Lake Wallace area of Drew County. Drew County Sheriff’s deputies were also present.
The video of the May alligator capture has been viewed over 2,000 times on MLive.
Captured alligators are generally re-located to an appropriate habitat, where they will not be around people.
