Live gator found in pillow case..in New York
BABYLON, N.Y. (AP) – A peace officer for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals happened across a moving pillowcase on a beach Saturday on which someone had written: “Live Gator – Please find him a home,” officials said.
The off-duty officer for the Suffolk County organization had been taking a walk on Long Island’s Overlook beach, according to the group. The officer called in a response team to rescue the 30-inch-long animal.
SPCA officials are asking for donations to help them care for the alligator until it can be taken to a sanctuary. They are also seeking information on who might have dumped the gator.
