Texas Officer Uses Bare Hands to Wrangle 8-Foot Alligator
Another officer sat on the reptile's tail.
A brave officer was captured on camera wrangling an 8-foot alligator in a Walmart parking lot in Aransas Pass, Texas, Wednesday.
He used his bare hands to hold the reptile's mouth shut, while another officer sat on its tail.
"We have a few alligators, but we have not seen one this big," Aransas Police Capt. Lynn Pearce told the Corpus Christi Caller Times.
This one ended up in the parking lot after crawling out of a nearby pond, according to police.
Pearce urged local residents to call authorities if they spot any alligators.
