Alligator sighting reported at Oklahoma City park

/> On Oct. 19, a tenant at Willow Cliff Lakeshore Apartments, 5304 Willow Cliff Road, reported seeing what was described as a 2-foot alligator in the apartment complex pond. The pond is about a quarter mile from Dolese Youth Park Pond.

Micah Holmes, spokesman for the state Department of Wildlife Conservation, said game wardens searched the apartment complex pond with no luck. Holmes said wardens now plan to search at Dolese Youth Park.

Holmes said beavers make motions with their tails as described by Hall.

Officials said someone may have released a pet. Alligators are illegal to own as pets in the state, Holmes said.

An alligator in central Oklahoma would not be likely to survive the winter, Holmes said.

"This is not alligator weather,” he said.

Anyone who sees an alligator can call the state Department of Wildlife Conservation at 521-3719.
