Ashley County deputies rescue alligator

Ashley County deputies Saturday afternoon rescued this 8 or 9-foot long alligator from Highway 160 in Thebes. It was living too close to the highway and going to get hit by a vehicle or injured in some way so it was transported to a safer location for itself. More photos.
