When she took a closer look, she came face to face with an alligator. Dosier says the alligator didn’t flinch.

The alligator was spotted in the vicinity of Dow Road and Fayetteville Avenue.

Around 8:45 a.m., officers with the Carolina Beach Police Department removed the alligator.

According to the North Carolina Wildlife Commission, if you see an alligator, look but don’t feed and don’t touch. You should also not harass or poach these animals. Alligators can become a nuisance when people intentionally or unintentionally feed them. Click here for more tips on how to co-exist with alligators.
