ay 9 Florida man cited after authorities found an illegally

Authorities stopped a Florida man who was driving with an illegally acquired alligator leg stuck in his dashboard – something even they don’t see every day.

On Monday morning, the FWC reported that two of its officers, Luis Merizio and Casey Schroer, stopped a truck at Corbett Conservation Area to check its day pass, but instead found many alligator parts scattered throughout the vehicle.

The owner of the truck claimed the parts belonged to an alligator he had hunted many years ago, but officers could tell by the smell that the alligator had died just days before, according to an FWC report.

In the end, the man confessed to hunting an alligator without permission a few days ago, and so the police made a link.
