Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency has confirmed the multiple alligator sightings in Tennessee are true.
According to the TWRA, alligators are naturally expanding into Tennessee from southern border states.
News Channel 5 in Nashville is reporting authorities with the TWRA said they have not stocked any alligators in the state, and they added the alligators are simply expanding. They said we must learn to coexist with them like many others in the southern states.

Swamp creatures have spread from Washington, D.C.
They had been spotted in the Elk River here in N Alabama, so that’s not terribly surprising.
Alligators Without Borders
One or two nice cold winters will cure that problem.
No doubt another vote for the Dummycrat party this November #voterfraud
Tennessee rivers are seething with poisonous snakes as well. So there should be no swimming in anything other than a swimming pool.
There are alligators in North Carolina, so the cold doesn’t affect them much. They burrow under the ground in a riverbank and hibernate...................
I thought I’d read they’ve been in the TN River at Joe Wheeler Wildlife Preserve for several years?
On a wishful not sea going crocodiles take over California beaches and water ways ... Sea lions, seals, sea otters, and surfers hardest hit.
Very funny, Joe!
I think you’re right on that too... and gee, the Tennessee River flows into... Tennessee!
I give you now Professor Twist,
A conscientious scientist,
Trustees exclaimed, “He never bungles!”
And sent him off to distant jungles.
Camped on a tropic riverside,
One day he missed his loving bride.
She had, the guide informed him later,
Been eaten by an alligator.
Professor Twist could not but smile.
“You mean,” he said, “a crocodile.”
“I thought it was Dan Mullin raiding TN for recruits. GO GATORS!!!”
Low center of gravity. Bad attitude. They’d be great linemen.
They are found naturally as far ‘north’ as Oklahoma and Arkansas. Still within the range of Southern Living magazine.
An alligator is reportedly on the loose in a New Jersey township, and authorities are warning residents to be cautious.
The Mullica Township Police Department said the gator was spotted on Hamburg Avenue Tuesday afternoon.
Capt. Brian Zeck said a woman was the first to report it after it walked across her property.
A homeowner saw it in her yard and videotaped it - its a confirmed alligator and its probably 3 and a half to 4 foot, he told Fox News.
Police offered advice for residents who own pets.
We are working with our partners in the animal protection and care fields to locate the animal, the department said in a Facebook post. Residents should be cautious letting small pets out in this area and to not approach the animal if it is located.
As of the Wednesday afternoon, Zeck says the creature was still roaming around, though wildlife officials are working on locating and trapping it.
Be on the lookout, do not approach it, contact police, he stressed.

A famous "giant" alligator nicknamed "Chubbs" got ready for another round of golf over the weekend.
The nearly 15-foot gator went viral in 2016 after casually strolling across the grass at Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida, as shocked golfers stared. Afterward, Sarasota resident Charles Helms shared a short clip of the "monstrous" creature on social media and the "dinosaur" instantly became a social media celebrity.
This alligator was so large he would only move slowly about 100 feet at a time before having to lie down and rest so he probably wasnt in as much danger as it may have appeared. An alligator expert may refute that; Im just going on what I have been told," Helms told Golf.com in May 2016.
This weekend, the famous resident returned to the golf course. Sage Stryczny told Fox News he spotted Chubbs on Friday while golfing in Palmetto with his dad.
"Never know what you're [going to] come across on the golf course," Stryczny posted on Facebook a day later, sharing a 10-second clip of the massive gator passing by his golf cart. The video, which shows the gator walking across the lawn at Buffalo Creek before resting, has been viewed more than 2,400 times as of Tuesday evening.
