WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Are you seeing more creepy crawlers in the night? Maybe even spotted an alligator in your neighborhood. "Good Morning Carolina" anchor Ashley Jacobs talked with an expert this morning who says the warm winter we had is definitely having an impact. Recently we've reported on alligator spotted in a Wilmington subdivision, as well as Oak Island Beach Villa residents complaining about raccoons. You could run into something scary, too, and it's all due to warm weather. "Bats, for one, did not hibernate all winter," Ben Mitchell of Critter Control said. "They go into hibernation in the fall and usually don't come out until around March, and this year due to warm weather they came out of hibernation a little bit early." Left with no food to eat, so they look for homes in unusual places, like your house. It is illegal to hurt or kill alligators in North Carolina. If you think you have a nuisance gator, call the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
