BALDWIN, N.Y. (AP) — An alligator has been found in a supermarket parking lot on New York's Long Island, just a day after another gator was discovered in the same lot.
A 3-to-4-foot-long alligator was discovered in the Pathmark parking lot Wednesday afternoon. On Tuesday, a 2-to-3-foot gator was found there.

The reptiles were captured and turned over to the Nassau County Emergency Services Unit. They will be sent to a reptile sanctuary in Florida.
WCBS-Radio (http://cbsloc.al/SyfI2h ) reports that authorities believe that someone dumped them there.
It was the third gator sighting on Long Island in less than a week. Last Friday, an alligator was found crawling on the front lawn of a Mastic beach home.
