Florida Gator Missing Half its Jaw Rescued by 2 Trappers and Is ‘Resting Safely’
“He’s safely resting and will be transported tomorrow to a facility for further care,” non-profit Bear Warriors United said.
It is unknown what caused the alligator to lose half its jaw but it is believed to have been another gator or a snare that likely caused the injury, Shadix said.
“He looks good other than his snout. He's not starving because he's pretty plump. His snout looks like it has healed as well. And please don't assume this was caused by an individual because no one really knows. Let's just concentrate on getting the little guy some help,” Jerry, who Shadix said was one of the few people in Seminole County allowed to catch and possess alligators, said.
After getting caught by two trappers, the gator was said to be resting safely before being taken to a care facility.
