ATHENS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - In a sign of spring, the Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary in Athens is releasing its gators to the outdoors.
The event allows the public to watch owner and founder David Critchlow and his crew reintroduce the reptiles back into the wild--or at least into their exhibits at the sanctuary.
Critchlow says people can even pose for pictures with some of the little alligators.
He says the spring release is very popular.
Critchlow says all of the animals at the sanctuary are rescued.
The sanctuary has alligators in all different sizes, and even have snakes and lizards.
If you'd like to hang out with the gators, there's still time, as the release is going on in Athens on M-66 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
