SNEADS FERRY -

An alligator was resting under a vehicle at a car lot in Sneads Ferry, and animal control had to come and remove the animal.

The below photo was submitted by a viewer at Gary's Auto Sales.

Witnesses said people were walking around the car lot and noticed the gator under the car. That was around 2:30 p.m., and the animal remained there.

Though the gator wasn't bothering anyone, officials from Onslow County Sheriff's Office have set up a perimeter.

Animal Control officials were able to secure the gator, and they removed it so they could take it and release it in the wild.
