Alligator drags animal carcass across South Carolina road

- A father and son were driving in the car just north of Charleston when they were stopped by a gruesome sight: an alligator dragging a bloody carcass into a wooded area on the side of the road. 

Daniel Martin says he was driving with his 10-year-old son Nathan through Berkeley County where they were camping a when they saw the nearly nine-foot-gator in the road. 

The pair were camping at the Short Stay Recreation Area when they left to head over to a shower facility. 

Martin says he couldn't tell if the carcass the alligator was dragging was a large fish or a baby deer, but he was certainly shaken by it, as he says he had just passed the area ten minutes earlier in the dark on an electric scooter.


One thing is for sure-- drivers, campers and residents of Berkeley County should be careful traveling through the area, especially at night!
