Alligator Found on Volusia County Beach
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - For the second time in two weeks, authorities have found a small alligator on a Volusia County beach.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that the young reptile was spotted Tuesday morning. The gator's jaws were shut tight with a black zip tie.
Two weeks ago, volunteers with the local turtle patrol corralled another alligator into a pet carrier after watching it scramble up the handicap ramp of a beachside condo.
Authorities say such incidents are rare, adding that rough seas and unusually high tides could have swept at least one of the gators into the ocean from the river.
