OAK ISLAND, NC (WECT) — A baby alligator was spotted taking in the waves at Oak Island on Friday morning.
Rebecca Whitesel saw the reptile and shared a video with WECT.
She and her husband called authorities, who explained he was probably washed out to the ocean by one of the storms from Thursday night.
An officer did pick up the alligator and planned to release it in its natural habitat.
