Residents in Clearfield County have been seeing an unusual site the past few days.

An alligator was spotted on Friday swimming around at the sewage authority in Mineral Springs.

The Fish and Boat Commission from the North Central Region tried to capture the reptile on Sunday, but was unsuccessful.

We’re told the gator was illegally released into the water.

The sewage authority has hired a licensed pest control agent to help the authority.  

If anyone has any information on who may have released this alligator, they are to call the North Central Region office of the PA Fish and Boat Commission.
