The Nassau County SPCA is offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction whoever is responsible for the baby alligator found outside of a Baldwin supermarket Tuesday evening.
Witnesses reported a gator up to three-feet long walking in the parking lot of Pathmark on Grand Avenue shortly before 8 p.m. Nassau County police caught the reptile and held it for Emergency Services Unit officers, who placed it in a cage and will release it to a local wildlife expert.
Last Friday Suffolk County police captured an alligator about the same size that was found in a Mastic Beach.
Anyone with information about the Baldwin alligator is asked to call the SPCA at 516-THE-SPCA. All calls will be kept confidential.
