Recently in our town Three high school kids took it upon theirselves to try to recreate the movie lake placid....residents that live on a local lake gave numerous reports of alligators spotted swimming in the lake. I didn't believe it at first, but a buddy of mine that is a DNR officer invited me to go with him at night and try to look for these alligators. Within two hours we spotted and capture the culprits. 2 small alligators-both under two feet long.....petty as it seems, it caused a real commotion around here-both alligators now reside at my home. The guys that released them are facing public endangerment charges as well as charges of releasing a non-native species.
