Gator sighting draws interest

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) - The stories about a 12-foot gator at a lake in southwest Arkansas has drawn the interests of residents and state wildlife officials, who offer one piece of advice... leave it alone.

According to a report from Little Rock television station KARK, the 12-foot gator was recently seen at Millwood Lake calling out its mating call.

Annette Brown of Nashville told the television station that she and her husband were fishing when they noticed the gator.

"It was just like 'Oh my God what is that?'" Brown said.

However, an official at the lake said the sighting was interesting.

"To see one do what the video showed it did, that's pretty unique in itself... especially when it's claiming its territory," Project Manager Tony Porter told KARK.
