Two western Pennsylvania men have been charged by the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission in connection with the release of an alligator that remains at large in the Kiskimenitas River. 
Austin Randall, 23, of Lindora, Butler County, was issued a summary violation for releasing a non-native species, and Dominic Albert Hayward, 26, of Kiski Township, Armstrong County, was cited for being present when the release occurred, according to commission spokesman Mike Parker. Randall reportedly was in the process of re-homing the 2-foot gator with Hayward on Aug. 29 when the reptile, named Neo, escaped.
