NPSO: ALLIGATOR VISITING INDEPENDENCE DRIVE AREA

Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies and Agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries responded on Aug. 12 at 10:20 am to reports of a large alligator in a yard on Independence Drive just south of Natchitoches according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say when they arrived on scene, the 8-foot alligator was lying calmly in the yard just watching them, however, when they asked it to move on it just remained there.

A wildlife agent arrived on scene. After an hour of negotiations the alligator slowly walked off and returned to its nearby habit.

  1. “After an hour of negotiations, the alligator slowly walked off….” Glad those negotiations resulted in a peaceful outcome.

    Since fewer and fewer humans are spending time outdoors, more and more wild animals are venturing out to reclaim the habitat we’ve stolen from them. But human interactions with wild animals usually end up with the animal dead.
