Deputies apprehend gator in subdivision front yard
BELLE CHASSE - Sheriff’s deputies in Plaquemines Parish took a 7-foot gator into “custody” in a Belle Chasse subdivision on Wednesday night.
Deputies responded to the scene in the 120 block of Bradley Place after they received reports of a disoriented alligator that had wandered its way into a front yard.
The gator was apprehended by deputies, and it was later released to an undisclosed, safe environment by a Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator.
The sheriff’s office noted that they occasionally recieve reports about alligators on the loose in rural areas, they typically don’t come across the animals in neighborhoods.
Wildlife agents speculated that the gator came out of the nearby Mississippi River and was looking to relocate to a canal in the area.
