Onslow County spokeswoman Lisa Whitman-Grice said the reptile, which was killed by police using a high-powered rifle Wednesday, will be displayed at the Onslow County Environmental Education Center and Library, which is expected to open this November or December, WNCT-TV, Greenville, N.C., reported Friday.

"If we see these animals and can learn from them, then that makes it all that more important to care for them," said Whitman-Grice.

Whitman-Grace said the taxidermy process on the alligator is expected to take 10 months to a year.

CBS News reported the alligator ate a Husky Tuesday in Jacksonville while the dog's owner was walking it without a leash.
