Alligator spotted at Municipal Park

Mobile County

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — An alligator was spotted on the edge of the lake at Municipal Park Thursday morning.

Matthew Aaron Dudley runs a disc retrieval service for disc golfers. It’s called “Duds Disc Diving.” He was about to get into the water to retrieve one of his client’s discs when he saw the gator.

Dudley says it happened around 11:15 Thursday morning at Hole 11 on the Municipal Red course.

Dudley recorded the gator and left as soon as he saw it moving.

Mobile Parks and Recreation have been made aware of the sighting. They posted this message to their Facebook page, which reads in part:

“We have spoken with Alligator Control about the possible alligator sighting at Langan Park and the only time the Department of Conservation will remove an alligator is if they are determined to be aggressive and posing a threat or have been known to be fed by humans and have lost their fear of humans, in which case they will be euthanized.”
