A second alligator spotted in Whitney Point, in Broome County, was captured Monday.
The capture came one day after a video was posted on Facebook of an alligator along the Tioughnioga River. The DEC said the 15 pound gator is between 2 and 4 years old and will be placed into quarantine before being turned over to the Animal Adventure Park, also in Broome County.
DEC officers captured an alligator in the same area back on July 29th. It was thought that alligator was a pet and was let go by its owner. It also has a new home at the Animal Adventure Park.
