Alligator Turned in to Long Island Animal Rescue Group

It's the 19th alligator to be turned in or found on Long Island in a little over a year

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.
