    Alligator Turned in to Long Island Animal Rescue Group

    An alligator was turned over to the Suffolk County SPCA Wednesday, making it the 19th to be turned in or found in the area in a little over a year, authorities said.

    The 2-foot-long American alligator was turned in by its owner, who missed the amnesty day a few weeks ago, according to Suffolk SPCA. Rescuers retrieved the reptile from a home in Miller Place. 

    The alligator appeared to be in good health and will be given to a licensed reptile facility.
