A public information officer told FOX 35 that officers received a call Sunday morning about an "aggressive" alligator at the park.  On Monday morning, officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the 10-foot gator, that was reportedly seen on the trail and then in a gazebo with a duck in its mouth, has left the area.
