Alligator found, killed after eating 80 lb. dog
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Police have tracked down and killed an alligator after it ate an 80 pound husky out on a walk in eastern North Carolina.
The dog's owner was walking it around dusk Tuesday night near a shopping center in Jacksonville, when the alligator lunged out of a pond and attacked.
The Wildlife Resources Commission talked about capturing the gator and relocating it, but decided it was too big a risk to the public to keep it alive.
