Authorities searching for alligator poachers in southern Oklahoma

By  | 

MARSHALL CO., OK -- Officials are asking for your help in solving an animal abuse case.

A dead alligator was found near the Bryan-Marshall county line with its tail removed.

Although Oklahoma contains a small, native population of American alligators in certain areas of the state, the alligators are protected by law and are illegal to kill.

If you have any information, please contact your local game warden.
