GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A University of Florida student is in legal trouble after an alligator hide was found drying in his fraternity house’s backyard.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said 22-year-old Cristov Dosev was charged with illegal possession of an alligator skin after the discovery.

Dosev was arrested on Wednesday after failing to appear in court for a citation, which was issued in December following an investigation into the gator hide after an anonymous tip.

FWS spokesman Brad Stanley told the Gainesville Sun (https://bit.ly/1OXepao ) that it is illegal to possess any alligator parts without the proper permit.

UF says Dosev is a senior in the College of Business, and is listed as president of Kappa Alpha on a fraternity website.
