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.
