Alligator found in Coitsville



Published: Thu, November 13, 2008 @ 6:14 p.m.

COITSVILLE — Coitsville Police Capt. Gary Abeid said he was skeptical when police received a call from a resident about a four-foot long alligator on his property.

But when he saw that the reptile was real, Abeid’s reaction was, “It’s big enough to hurt somebody.”

The alligator was secured with an animal snare, and after checking with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife for protocol, Abeid killed it with his .223-cal. rifle “to keep it from being a threat to any residents.”
