TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a 10-foot long alligator has been euthanized after being hit by two cars in Tuscaloosa.

Alabama Department of Conservation Officer Craig Latham says the gator was hit near the Tuscaloosa bypass toll bridge Monday night.

Latham says the alligator’s head and tail had been run over by two different vehicles.

The alligator was taken to Auburn University for biologists to examine. Latham says alligator sightings are rare in western Alabama and residents should keep their distance from the animals if they see them.
