— It's not quite Big Al, but another large alligator has been captured on Hilton Head Island, this time at Bear Creek Golf Club.

The alligator was pulled from a lagoon by Joe Maffo of Critter Management just after 10 a.m. July 4, according to Hilton Head resident Alexander Wattay.

The creature appeared to have been involved in a fight with another alligator, Wattay said in an email.
