Clarke County Sheriff Deputies along with the local Game Warden were called to Northrup Chapel Church on Highway 145 south this evening for a baby gator who wondered up in the driveway.

Before going into the church parking lot, 911 Dispatchers reported the gator walking up and down Highway 145 and had gotten a few calls about it being in the road.

As officials arrived on scene, the gator then ran to the church to take cover on the porch.

Perhaps it was only looking for food, maybe a place to get cool after crossing the road several times or as one of the Deputies said “He was just lookin’ for a little Jesus” ….

The Game Warden was able to successfully capture the 4 Ft. little fella and place it in “protective custody”. The gator will be safely relocated.
