Don't Even Think About It!
USDA wildlife biologists and conservation law enforcement officers at MCAS New River were monitoring the activities of this alligator due to its proximity to the barracks at AS-4015. Unfortunately, people have been actively feeding this alligator which is why it moved towards the camera when a piece of grass was thrown its way. Alligators are usually shy and
secretive, but lose their fear of people and begin to associate them with food when humans toss food their way. In addition to being illegal, feeding an alligator is dangerous and creates a safety issue if they become
habituated to being fed by humans. In the case of this specific alligator, plans were in the works to capture and relocate it to a remote location elsewhere on the installation. The very next day, the alligator had moved to another unknown location. Here at MCB Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River, if you believe an alligator is being fed or is a safety concern, please call 911 and wildlife officials will be dispatched to investigate.
