HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – Two people were issued summons for allegedly harassing an alligator in a neighborhood in the Myrtle Beach area, officials said.

According to Kaley Lawrimore with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, the incident happened on Feb. 12 off Blue Tree Court in the Island Green neighborhood in Horry County. She added the alleged harassment occurred on private property.

Lawrimore said DNR officials wouldn’t have made a case if it hadn’t been for tips from the public.
