Man encounters alligator while walking his dog.

LACONIA — A local man and his pet pooch had a close encounter of a different kind one recent Friday night when they went for a walk and saw an alligator resting on an Elm Street sidewalk.

The man, who asked not to be identified, said his dog started acting a little skittish so he knew the dog heard or smelled something. He saw the alligator seconds later.

"It was lying on the sidewalk," he said, describing it as a two-foot "crocodile" that ran into a neighboring property when it noticed he and the dog.

The man said he called the Laconia Police.

Lt. Rich Simmons said yesterday that on August 16 at 9:25 p.m. police were notified about a 2-to-3 foot alligator near the corner of Jefferson and Elm Streets.

Two officers responded and the supervisor called Lt. Mike Eastman of the N.H. Department of Fish and Game and learned the alligator belongs to one of the few licensed alligators owners in the state.

Simmons said Eastman told his officers where the alligator's owner lived and the man's two teenaged daughters came and picked up the gator and carried it home.

I wouldn't think they would be allowed to let them run free!
