Tuscaloosa Police Capture 8-Foot Alligator at Local Business

Apparently there are more alligators in Tuscaloosa than we thought.  First we had a gator in Lake Tuscaloosa and today it was the Liberty Recycling Plant.

Tuscaloosa Police Officers responded to a report of an alligator siting at Liberty Recycling about 7:40 this morning. When they arrived they were informed that a driver had found an alligator measuring close to 8 ft. under his 18 wheeler.

Employees from Tuscaloosa Police Department’s Traffic Division, Lake Patrol and Tuscaloosa Department of Transportation’s Animal Control were able to capture the alligator and secure it until it was turned over to Alabama Game and Fish to be transported to Gainesville, AL and released back into its natural habitat.
