Alligator/cyclist run-in, redux

Posted by on September 19th, 2008 at 1:04 pm

Remember the man-eating alligator that turned up on a traffic sign back in May?

Thankfully, it has since been removed by city clean-up crews, but that pesky alligator seems to have resurfaced far out on the Springwater Corridor Trail. The Portland Mercury blog has the story:

“Bikers on the Springwater Corridor and 190th came across a surprise on Friday afternoon: a three-foot long alligator!…”

The cops ended up putting the creature in their trunk, but not before a few cyclists snapped a photo or two.

Check out the full story and photos on the Mercury blog.
