Arkansas Game & Fish Commission biologists David Luker, Allen Clawson and Mark Barbee recently captured an alligator in the backyard of a Drew County landowner. The alligator was relocated to a secluded area in Arkansas County.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission receives more than 60 nuisance alligator calls each year.

Harvest and transport of alligators is federally regulated. Only authorized AGFC staff may attempt to relocate alligators in Arkansas. Anyone who has a nuisance alligator on their property should contact the AGFC at 1-800-482-9262.
