ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

DNR rangers captured the 7-foot long Lake Loretta gator around 5 p.m. Tuesday evening at the northwest Albany lake that's popular with walkers.

Neighbors took pictures of the gator with its mouth taped shut and front legs bound.

A gator initially appeared in the lake late last year, then showed up again a few weeks ago.

WALB was told that the DNR is releasing the gator in a safer place out in the county.
