A young gator who had called a Gwinnett County neighborhood lake his home can do so no more.
In less than two minutes time, trackers Jason and Sarah Clark with Southeastern Reptile Rescue caught the three-and-a-half foot gator in Dunlin Lake.
With just a fishing pool in hand, they made it look easy, despite Jason's arm being bitten in the process.
"He could have taken a chunk off if he hadn't been holding him," says Sarah. "He's big enough to take down a small dog."
She says since the gator was likely someone's pet and dumped in the lake at least a year ago, he can't be released into the wild because he relies on humans for food.
But not to worry, Jason says the little guy won't be euthanized.
"We travel around and do educational programs for schools all over the state and at different facilities, so we can definitely add him to the group of alligators we already have," he says.
The homes owners association hired the Clarks to capture the reptile after concern that some of the residents were feeding it.
