BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – The mutilated body of an alligator was discovered Monday evening in the middle of a Palm Bay road, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.
The decapitated, tailless gator was discovered on Pace Drive Northwest near Delhaven Avenue Northwest, FWC spokesman Greg Workman said.
“So literally right there, in oncoming traffic,” resident Brandon Gibson said, pointing to the place where he discovered the carcass. “It was literally an alligator with its head and tail cut off.”
Gibson told Channel 9 a neighbor called police to have the animal removed. The gator’s tail was discovered less than one block away.
“I kind of wanted to throw up,” he said. “It was nasty. The smell was bad, too. I mean, yeah, it was horrible.”
