Earlier today, July 9, 2022, a person reported seeing what they thought was an alligator while hiking in the Whitehouse Nature Center. College staff investigated but did not locate an alligator. The College is working with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to determine the next steps.

In the meantime, we urge everyone to stay away from the area while the College works with authorities to locate and remove the alligator.
