ANTIS TOWNSHIP, BLAIR COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A possible alligator is captured near Altoona.
Blair County crews were busy trying to capture the elusive reptile. Crews tried to snag the scaly creature for about an hour before finally wrangling it.
They’re not sure yet if the three-foot reptile is an alligator or caiman. It was taken to a Wildlife Care Facility while they work to determine who let it go in the wild.
Officials suspect the animal was dropped near the river by an owner.
