Reward of Up to $5,000 Offered for Help Nabbing Alligator Abuser


PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for impaling an alligator through the neck with two arrows and wrapping a rope around the animal’s feet and mouth.

The injured alligator—who is well known in the area and has never behaved aggressively—was found on April 28 near a backyard pond on Oak Hill Loop. Wildlife officials immediately took the animal to receive treatment, but the sheriff’s office has no leads about the identity of the attacker(s).

“Someone shot this alligator twice in the neck, tied the animal up, and left him or her to suffer and die,” says PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “PETA urges anyone with information to come forward immediately so that the abuser can be held accountable and stopped from hurting anyone else.”

Please call Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information about the group’s work for animals, please visit
