SUMMERDALE, Ala (WKRG) — On Sunday, one of the original gators that lived at the sanctuary in Summerdale for the last 15 years was found dead.
A necropsy showed the gator, known as Shifty, had been shot.
Owner Wes Moore says he feels violated and is angry. He is offering a $2,000 reward for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person who would do something like this out of what he calls, “pure meanness.”
