Gator takes a wrong turn, shows up at the beach

GULF SHORES, AL (WKRG) —  It’s not everyday that you’re walking along the beach and spot an alligator coming out of the water.

That’s exactly what happened over the weekend at Fort Morgan, where beachgoers snapped these photos of a gator that surfaced on the beach.

According to Fort Morgan Fire Rescue, wildlife officials advised to leave the gator alone and let it find it’s way back home.  It’s likely the gator came all the way from the shallow waters of Mobile Bay, where gators are know to be prevalent.

As of Monday morning, the pictures have been shared more than 2,500 times. Not something you see everyday!
