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

In videos uploaded by the local fire department, animal officials can be seen lassoing the reptile, and eventually pulling it out of the home.

The St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1 told 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.
