Last month, Georgia Department of Natural Resources law enforcement officers observed a 9-foot alligator with unlikely prey still stuck in its teeth — a square, white flotation device.
Sgt. James Shelton and Cpl. Jay Morgan were patrolling the Ogeechee River above and below King’s Ferry ramp on June 9, checking boaters and fishermen when they spotted the 9-foot alligator with a seat-cushion-type, throwable life jacket stuck in its mouth. When the alligator submerged, the cushion brought it back to the surface.
“After approaching the alligator, the alligator submerged several more times and the personal flotation device eventually broke free of the alligator’s teeth,” the officers’ report stated.
