SARASOTA, Fla. – Florida wildlife investigators want to know what happened to an alligator found without its head on the side of a roadway.
The gator was spotted Monday by Kimberly Kukich, who was driving to her parents’ home in Sarasota. As she got closer to the large gator, she saw its head was missing.
Kukich said in a Facebook post that it looks like someone used a chain saw to cut the gator’s head off.
Now, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is on the case. It’s illegal to possess alligator parts without proper permits.
