Jimmy English, with Wildlife Removal Service, puts an elastic band around the mouth of a six-foot alligator found in the yard of Joe Wayne and Inge Cheshire in the River Oaks subdivision of New Hanover County, near Wilmington, N.C., earlier today. About 20 area residents gathered around to watch as English, with help from his nephew, Joe Carroll, quickly snared the alligator and brought it under control. (AP Photo)
