Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

NEWCOMERSTOWN, OH (WOIO) - A rebellious reptile has been reigned in!

A four-foot gator was captured in the Tuscarawas River at the Route 258 Bridge by a fisherman Monday morning.

Officials were concerned about the safety of swimmers as well as those on the bridge before the critter capture.

But beware - there is still one gator on the loose in the river who frequently likes to sun itself on a log.
