Not your typical U.P, wildlife story. An alligator has escaped from a Mackinac County zoo.According to WPBN Television, it's not a very large reptile, only about a foot long. It apparently escaped from the Garlyn Family Zoo near Naubinway.
It has been sighted at least once since escaping and the Michigan State Police were called. However by the time they arrived, the gator was long gone.
Anyone visiting Mackinac County should be on the alert for this missing alligator. If you should find it, please contact the police for proper recovery.
