Just heard on CNN that nine alligators and a number of deer are swimming the streets of Gulf Shores. Police are armed with guns to tranquilize the deer and kill the alligators.

The animals were left at a zoo.
One of the alligators named Chuckie is 12 feet long and weighs 1000 pounds.
He is one of 7 still missing, 13 deer remain missing also.

The 12-foot, 1,000 pound alligator is the focus of an intensive hunting expedition after Hurricane Ivan's fury sent him swimming from his confines at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo.

Before the storm, Chuckie was one of the zoo's most popular attractions and a favorite of children.

Now, with his first appearance on CNN swimming around an isolated, and newly created pond, he's become a media darling.

"When the zoo officials saw our tape, they said, 'That's Chuckie! You've found Chuckie,' " CNN's Gary Tuchman said.
