MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. - Unlike the alligators of urban legend that lurk in Manhattan’s sewers, a real-life reptile took up residence in a drain pipe in an otherwise quiet neighborhood near the Ulamay Wildlife Sanctuary -- belching menacing, rumbling hisses at passers-by.

 

Since December, the alligator inhabited the grated end of a stormwater pipe off Lakewood Circle. And nearby humans feared for the animal’s health and safety.

 

Neighborhood guesstimates of the gator’s length ranged from 4 to 10 feet -- only the fearsome, scaly snout was typically visible, poking out of the pipe. Whatever its length, the toothy reptile apparently was not happy with its living situation.

The poor alligator was stuck in a drain pipe in Merritt Island, Florida.  Its not good for the alligators safety or the peoples  safety that found him.  After they caught him they relocated him to St. Johns River Marsh.  Near where the pipe was there was a school.. At the school they had boys that feed it hot dogs and even teased it.  Also they had girls that conducted a prayer service rigth by the pipe where alligator was at.  It was stuck in a drain pipe.

This alligator was stuck in a drain pipe in Merritt Island, Florida.  Its not good for the alligators safety or the peoples  safety.  Espeectily for the people that found the animal stuck.    After they caught him they relocated him to St. Johns River Marsh.  Near where the pipe was there was a school.. At the school they had boys that feed it hot dogs and even teased it.  Also they had girls that conducted a prayer service rigth by the pipe where alligator was at.  It was stuck in a drain pipe. It would have been bad if anyone got hurt in the process of getting the animal out! But, luckly nobody was hurt!!
