Second Alligator Found In Supermarket Parking Lot

BALDWIN, N.Y. (October 4, 2012)--An alligator has been found in a supermarket parking lot on New York's Long Island, just a day after another gator was discovered in the same lot.

A 3-to-4-foot-long alligator was discovered in the Pathmark parking lot Wednesday afternoon.

On Tuesday, a 2-to-3-foot gator was found there.

The gators were captured, turned over to the Nassau County Emergency Services Unit and will be sent to a reptile sanctuary in Florida.

Authorities believe that someone dumped them there.

It was the third gator sighting on Long Island in less than a week.

Last Friday, an alligator was found crawling on the front lawn of a Mastic beach home.
