A flyfisherman on the Delaware river in Hancock, Delaware County, almost stepped on a 2-3 foot alligator in the river. It retreated without injuring the fisherman. Apparently someone had it as a pet and did not want it anymore so they released it near the Lordsville Bridge. The article with picture was in the Hancock Reporter on 5/21/06.
