Message stuck to dead alligator found in Collier County
COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.– A dead alligator was found marked with a message near Olde Cypress Golf Course on Monday morning.
“I was walking along Logan Boulevard and was pretty startled to see a dead alligator laying there along the path with a big piece of yellow tape stuck on it,” Elizabeth Axeberg said.
The yellow piece of tape was stuck on the gators stomach with a message saying “hit by a car”.
“It was just very surprising that someone would be callous enough to take the time to stick a piece of tape on it then just throw it to the side of the road. It just doesn’t make any sense to me at,” Axeberg said.
FWC said if you hit an alligator, call immediately at 888–404- 3922. There is no penalty for accidentally hitting an alligator while driving.
Collier County workers removed the carcass after our NBC2 crew on the scene reported it.
