Wildlife officers find alligator in Tennessee lake

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - An alligator has been found in Watts Bar Lake near Spring City. Tennessee wildlife officers discovered the five-foot gator Sunday on a log sunning itself like a turtle. Officials speculated that it was bought as a pet in Florida, got too big and was released. It was euthanized and will be stuffed by a taxidermist and used as an educational display.
