Georgia Police: Stop Taking Selfies With 6-Foot Gator

Georgia Police: Stop Taking Selfies With 6-Foot Gator

Fearing Snapchat could take an ugly turn, police are warning people not to take selfies with an alligator in suburban Atlanta.

Peachtree City police also advise residents not to feed the 6-foot gator known as “Flat Creek Floyd” as he soaks in the sun on Flat Creek, about 30 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta.

Peachtree City police Lt. Mark Brown tells WSB-TV that the gator’s presence has “gone a little crazy” on social media.

Police say that when Floyd was spotted earlier this month, it was the first alligator sighting in the area in five years. Gators are common in parts of south Georgia, but are not usually seen in metro Atlanta.
