Unwelcome visitor apprehended at Biloxi Lighthouse

Yes, we’re a visitor-oriented city, and everyone is welcome.  Well, not quite everyone.

Biloxi Police Officer Bryan Wallace this afternoon muzzled a four-foot alligator on the Biloxi beachfront after a beachgoer carried the four-legged reptile to the shoreline.

It’s a rare occurrence, said Wallace, a former Department of Marine Resources officer who’s actually hog-tied a gator or two in his day. He said the gator would be relocated to the wild, far away from the usually inviting beaches of Biloxi.
