As the search comes to an end for the elusive alligator things slowly return to normal. Albion College released a statement via their Facebook page that the Whitehouse Nature Center would reopen as usual. They stated “Staff consulted with state and local wildlife experts and followed their advice about when and how to conduct searches along the trails and Kalamazoo River. The College followed the instructions precisely and found no evidence of an alligator at this time in the Whitehouse Nature Center”.
What this means is that there are no obvious signs of an alligator beyond the two separate witness reports. Now this does not mean that BRITagator isn’t out there. So, as you walk the trails and float the river be aware of your surroundings because you never know if ole “BRIT” will appear again.
