Deputy Bahnsen of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Roundtree Road in Hanover Township, where allegedly an alligator had been located in the yard of the residence. The home owner advised that the alligator came from a pond and swamp area onto his property and was walking across the yard.

When the Sherrif’s Deputy arrived, he found the resident holding the alligator with a fishing net, waiting until the Deputy Bahnson could assist him. Following its discovery and capture, the alligator was transported to the Jackson County Animal Shelter.

A man near Lansing found an alligator on the side of the road yesterday as well. The first alligator was found dead on the side of Mt. Hope Highway in Lansing on Thursday.
