SAVANNAH, Ga. — Officials at the Fort Pulaski National Monument are warning visitors to stay away from an alligator recently spotted in a moat on the site.

The Savannah Morning News reports that alligators, snakes and other animal sightings are common at the site located between Savannah and Tybee Island.

Fort Pulaski's acting Chief of Interpretation Joel Cadoff says visitors should be cautious near the moat where the alligator has been seen and never feed an alligator or other wildlife. Officials also are warning visitors to avoid getting between an alligator and any water source.

Cadoff says the site also acts as a refuge for wildlife, and officials don't want to remove or euthanize the alligator or other animals.
