Starke County fishermen discover dead alligator in Kankakee River
STARKE CTY, Ind. – Some Stake County fishermen had a surprising find in the Kankakee River.
An alligator measuring 4 feet, 7 inches was found dead with its mouth taped shut. Indiana Conservation officers say it was probably a pet that outgrew its welcome and was released into the river.
That move illegal and requires a permit.
