"The flood waters were really tough on whitetail deer, and they're known for being good swimmers," said Andy Tweed, a conservation officer with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

The majority of the alligators in Shelby County are found, believe it or not, toward downtown," says Andy Tweed, game warden for Tennessee Wildlife Resources.
Alligators have been seen in recent years in the Mississippi, Wolf, and Loosahatchie rivers but are more common in the latter two, according to Tweed. They have also been spotted in McKellar Lake.
Tweed thinks the alligator population here will increase significantly. "It'll take another 20 years before they're really prevalent in the West Tennessee area," Tweed says.
Tweed says he's spotted a half-dozen alligators in the wild here over the past decade.
"They're few and far between, but they are here," Tweed says.
Tweed says the coyote, also known as the American jackal, is the most adaptable animal in North America, primarily because it eats anything, including rodents, immature deer, rabbits, turkeys, and occasionally snakes.
Not at all, Tweed says. "They don't attack people. They don't like people, because we're about their only predator," he says.
They're commonly found in the Wolf River bottoms, on Presidents Island, Ensley Bottoms, the north end of Mud Island, Collierville, Cordova, Shelby Farms, and near the Stonebridge Golf Course in Lakeland, according to Tweed and Adams.
"A healthy population of bobcats only means that we have an abundance of rabbits or rodents," Tweed says.
Tweed says people should beware of copperheads if they have a woodpile. "That's a good place for a copperhead to make a home," he says. "It's warm in the winter and cool in the summer."

"I got a call about 3 p.m. about either a hippo or a manatee in the water," said Andy Tweed, an officer with the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency.
"If he did swim from Florida, he's doing really well," Tweed said, estimating its size between eight and 10 feet, and its weight up to 1,000 pounds.
Well he's a little lost! I hope he makes it through this ok and they figure out a way to get him (or her) back to their native waters and not locked up in some aquarium somewhere!
