HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — An apparent alligator was spotted in the ocean in the Cherry Grove area on Sunday.

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources was called at about 3 p.m. to remove an approximately five-foot-long alligator that was in the surf line, according to North Myrtle Beach spokesperson Donald Graham.

Alligators are primarily freshwater animals, preferring swamps, lakes or ponds, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

They are not often found near the ocean.
