Gator in Eden Pines Subdivision

This eight foot alligator was spotted in Eden Pines Subdivision, on Cypress Drive, Big Pine Key this morning, just before 9 a.m. Sheriff’s dispatchers notified the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission so they could send someone to the area to trap and relocate it. In the meantime, deputies assigned to the area are keeping an eye on it to make sure people and animals are aware of its presence and stay a safe distance away.
