Baby alligator found with mouth taped shut
BAY ST. LOUIS, Ms. (WFLA) – A baby alligator was recently rescued by a trapper after being found with its mouth taped shut.
NBC reported that the alligator was spotted in a Bay St. Louis neighborhood. A wildlife company responded, and a worker found the alligator hiding in a drainage ditch.
A video shows the worker quickly getting the alligator out of the ditch.
The tape was later removed from the alligator’s mouth and moved to a different location.
It’s not clear who taped the alligator’s mouth shut.
Witnesses told NBC that the alligator was spotted near children swimming and people taped its mouth shut to prevent it from hurting anyone. But that has not been confirmed.
