    There are at least two Alligators in a nearby marsh. I don't have time to give many details right now but this far north they will not survive the winter. Does anybody knowof any rescue groups that will capture these gators?

    If I am correct Ozzy, you live in Ohio. Gators will not survive a winter that far north.
    I would contact the Ohio Fish and Game Commission. They should be able to help.
    You did not say how big the critters are. If they are three feet or under they should be easy to capture and would be of minimal danger to the captors. You could even do it yourself. However, if they are much larger than that...make sure your hospitalization is paid up.
    What ever you do, do it soon, since cold weather is not all that far off up there.
    Let me know how it goes. I am interested in the outcome.
    And, No, we do not need any more down here but the Columbus zoo might.

    That is odd to have Alligators in Ohio. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] I wonder how they got there?

    I suppose watching the croc hunter we should all have a good idea on how to catch them. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Good luck and keep us updated.

    I posted that this morning before I went to work and I didn't have time to give many details.

    There are at least one gator or camen but there could be more. I believe there are two there. I'm almost sure that they were pets that were released because they got to big. (I'm not going to get into what a moron that guy is.) They look to be around 3 to 4 ft long. Plan A right now is to contact some zoo's and see if they will do it all themselves. If I have to I will try and set something up to capture them and then donate them to a zoo.
    Plan B is to capture them and release them somewhere where they can survive and be away from people. I know of two places in NC that may be perfect for this.
    If I have to do this it's going to cost me more money than I have. So I may call a different companies in the area and ask that they donate some of their services for free publicty.
    Does anybody have any other ideas or do you see any problems with mine?
    I've already scraped plan C. Mailing them to Lauderdale [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    ill do it ozzy! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] '

    that was probably a hint hint to death66 and nick hubbell [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] First have an animal program/organisation do it for publicity, contact the newspaper, and donate the animals to a zoo.
