These two people and their leader are professional alligator catchers. The leader is behind the tree out of sight. I don't know the whole story but the huge alligator who has been making its home in the Phillippi Creek north of Bahia Vista wanted to feast on Jean Bender's cats a few days ago.
The cats were smart enough to get up on the roof of a vehicle, out of the alligator's reach. So these people were hired to catch or trap the alligator. Sunday evening he was still on the loose, hiding someplace and I haven't seen Jean today, so I don't have the latest on the alligator.
