Residents say 'Later Alligator'

Some Phenix City residents were happy to say, "later alligator," over the weekend. That's because a 5-foot-long gator was out-and-about in a residential area off of Highway 431. "We just took a noose put it around it's neck and pulled him up the bank. We were able to put some tape around it's mouth and remove him from the area," says David Reeves of the Phenix City Police Department.

Reeves says the gator was probably washed into the area by all the flooding from the Chattahooche. The same day another gator was spotted by Lee County residents.
