Gator aid called in for alligator enjoying day at Myrtle Beach
Beach-goers spotted an alligator walk onto the shoreline of Myrtle Beach from the Atlantic Ocean near 43rd Avenue North Monday evening. Witnesses said the three-to-four-foot long reptile came ashore, soaked up some sun then turned and high-stepped back into the surf as they waited for police to arrive.
