Investigators looking for clues as alligators are popping up on Long Island
 
It’s no croc — investigators are scrambling to nab the snake in the grass responsible for abandoning an astonishing seven alligators across Long Island in the past 30 days.
So far, officials remain dumbfounded by the glut of gators.
“It seems like someone with a sense of humor. Maybe it’s a University of Florida fan and they’re spreading the word,” speculated Dr. Russell Burke, a Hofstra University herpetologist.
The first gator was nabbed on a lawn in Mastic on Sept. 28, according to Suffolk SPCA Chief Roy Gross, who said another was corralled on Oct. 1 at the Great Rock Golf Course in Wading River; two more on Oct. 2 and 3 in a Waldbaum’s parking lot in Baldwin; another on Oct. 7 outside an Applebee’s in Shirley; and one more on Oct. 20 in Lily Pond Park in Lake Ronkonkoma. Another was caught in the past few weeks in Yaphank, he said.
All the critters were American alligators, a species not indigenous to Long Island — except maybe on pocketbooks and high heels.

Reminds me of Silas - The Great Escape. It's a book about an alligator who gets flushed down the toilet and plots his escape from the sewers of New York.

Man.

Flashback from when I was a wee little tyke. Anybody else remember that book?

Dropping alligators in an inhabited area where nobody expects them sounds quite dangerous. Especially for kids.

I remember that one, damned if I know why or how! Apparently Silas met a ladygator down there in the sewers!
