This is from my county, Carteret County North Carolina. Stacy is about 40 miles away from my home. The Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is 6 miles. Alligators are very common in "Down East" Carteret County.
A motorist first spotted the alligator crossing Highway 70, near the Sea Level high rise bridge around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The alligator was taken to a swamp near Open Grounds Farm in Carteret County Tuesday night
In North Carolina, before this incident, there had only been three recorded bites of an alligator on a person in history, this is the first known attack on an alligator by a scientist.
The injured scientist was taken to Carteret General Hospital, and a statement from the aquarium said he was recovering at home Wednesday.
