800+ pound alligator struck and killed

Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge lost one of its larger alligators to a traffic accident on Sunday night. For many years, a large alligator has been regularly seen in a canal nearby during May and early June. Biologist Dennis Stewart says there is no way to confirm if this is the same alligator at this time, but it appears to be similar in size.
