Tanner In The Morning

Weekdays 5:00AM - 10:00AM

American Alligator swimming in the spring swamp in Texas

If you have listened to the Tanner in the Morning show awhile (thank you for that!), then you know that we are all animal lovers. So, when the news came out there was an alligator located in a Florida pond swimming around with a knife in its head our hearts went out.  It now looks like the story is mercifully over for the reptile.

The creature was first featured on social media after being discovered in a pond about thirty minutes north of Orlando.  Noone wants to be on an alligator’s menu and there is no word on why someone tried to harm the animal.  Was it in self defense or was this an act of cruelty? There is probably only one person that knows the answer to that.

The story is now over for the alligator, the Charlotte Observer reports this morning that the creature was captured and euthanized.  To learn more, get details right here.

If you live in Florida, chances are you will meet up with an alligator at some point, even in some parts of North Carolina or South Carolina. Here are some tips from forestwildlife.org.
