The second alligator running along the banks of the Tioughnioga River in Whitney Point is on its way to a new home after being captured.

Jessica Iversen and her boyfriend first saw the gator Saturday, August 5th and were keeping an eye out Monday afternoon, August 7th. “We spotted it along Route 11 in Berkshire, just before the 81 bridge and called the DEC back who were already in the area.”

The 45-inch long alligator weighed approximately 15 pounds will be taken to Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville New York, where the first captured gator was taken.

First Whitney Point Alligator Captured

“We are excited to hear the news of a second alligator, and even more pleased and relieved to hear it was captured safely,” said Animal Park owner Jordan Patch. “We look forward to giving both of these animals a safe and suitable home at Animal Adventure Park.”

The DEC says while rare, alligators are not unheard of in New York State. It is illegal to keep one for a pet. “However it is possible an individual obtained an alligator out of state, kept it as a pet until it became too large to care for, and released it into New York waters.”
