Joe Maffo, owner of Critter Management, picks up a female alligator that he wrangled on June 19 in the median at the intersection of U.S. 278 and Gumtree Road on Hilton Head Island as Beaufort County Sheriff deputies watch. Maffo said the alligator probably came from the Marshpoint Villa area and was likely headed to Jarvis Creek Park to nest.
