SPOILER: Despite what you may have read on social media, there are no alligators in the Ohio River.

Alligator in the water

You have likely seen the article floating around Facebook claiming that there was an "Alligator Spotted in the Ohio River." Someone on my Facebook feed surmised that it was likely a young pet that had been abandoned in the river. This is the point that I would like to point out the source website React365 is a bogus news site. It literally is made up, user created fiction. If you scroll to the bottom of their website it reads, "This website is an entertainment website, news are created by users. These are humourous news, fantasy, fictional, that should not be seriously taken or as a source of information." Short version - there are no alligators in the Ohio River.
