Hurricane Sewer Gator Hotline: Post-Irene Updates

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 28th, 2011

If anyone hears any stories of alligators being sighted, found, or rumored from the sewers or elsewhere in any of the cities up and down the East Coast in the path of Irene, be sure to let us know here at Cryptomundo!!

In my book, Mysterious America, you can read more about all kinds of sewer gators. For more specifically on the 1930s’ New York City gators, see here.


(1) Rhode Island
A three-foot alligator was caught during this previous week in the Woonsquatucket River in Providence, Rhode Island.

(2) New Jersey

Post-Irene capture of a two-footer seen above occurred in Gloucester Township, New Jersey (see details below in comments and/or here)

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969.

He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Only thing I’ve heard of so far is overly large sewer/subway rats. Sorry.

  2. Jason P. responds:

    Here’s one [in a Pennsylvania newspaper about a New Jersey incident]:

    “A two-foot alligator was found – and captured – in Gloucester Township as residents cleaned up in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene this afternoon.”

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
