WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A long way from its home, a small alligator was rescued by a Massachusetts fisherman Tuesday after it was spotted in the Westfield River for months.
Jeremy White, a worker for the state's department of conservation and recreation, said he saw a video of the alligator on the news and decided he was going to see it for himself, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday.
White drove his boat to the area in the river where the alligator was spotted but couldn't see it and decided to throw in a fishing line. The alligator appeared and White pushed closer to it.
