Louisiana firefighters handcuffed an alligator last week after it was caught roaming around a house under construction in St. Tammany Parish.

The St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1 told InsideEdition.com that the alligator was released by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries on the opposite side of town near a swamp — a natural habitat for its kind.
