Wranglers Catch Feisty 8-Foot Alligator That Wandered Into Homeowner’s Garage
The gator tried to put up a fight as it was captured.
A curious eight-foot alligator sent shock waves through a Florida neighborhood when it found itself in a family’s garage Friday night.
Florida Fish and Wildlife had to remove the feisty creature from the home in Naples, Fla., located within the confines of the Valencia Golf and Country Club.
When officials tried to tame the beast, the gator kept its mouth open and looked like it was ready to snap its jaws shut at any given moment.
At one point, the experts were able to get a harness around the gator’s neck while it put up a fight.
During the struggle, they were eventually able to clamp the gator’s mouth shut and safely remove it from the compound.
It is still unknown how the gator ended up in the garage.
There are an estimated 1.3 million alligators that inhibit various parts of Florida, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
