An alligator was captured in Banks County Tuesday afternoon.
"Banks County Emergency Services, along with the marshal's office, code enforcement and Georgia Department of Natural Resources worked side by side in the safe capture of this "not so native" creature this afternoon," said Banks County EMS on Tuesday.
The alligator was captured near Banks Crossing and has been removed for relocation.
"This was definitely a first for us," said EMS.
The alligator was not killed. The DNR will decide where it will be relocated.
