Gator Sighting in the Chattahoochee

Watch your toes! A nearly 300 pound, 7-foot alligator has been spotted recently north of Interstate 285 and Interstate 75 in some swamp land in the Chattahoochee River National Recreational Area.

Park rangers have posted signs warning of the gator’s presence, and visitors are urged to keep a close eye on pets and children.

Rangers say this particular alligator has shown no signs of aggression, but urge visitors not to provoke the reptile.

It has been assumed the gator was released into the water after it outgrew its home. National Park Service officials say the alligator was first seen five years ago near the park at Paces Mill Road. Attempts to catch the gator in the past were unsuccessful.
