An alligator wandering a sidewalk not far from a school needed to be removed Thursday by a trapper. The video shows it was a big one, too!
The trapper, Doug Payne, was called to remove the 10 foot long reptile, weighing as much as 800 pounds. It was found on a sidewalk in a residential area near Scott Lake.
School children were understandably frightened of the alligator, caught a few blocks away from Lakeland Highlands Middle School.
The video, by Deputy Ashtin Mosley, shows the large alligator as it was being wrangled by the trapper. A 10 foot long alligator is about average.
@PolkCoSheriff Deputies met this dude on a Lakeland sidewalk Thursday. 10ft long, 800lbs. A trapper had to come get him from the residential/school area. Video is by D/S Ashtin Mosley. And no, she won't be sporting a new belt and boots next week. pic.twitter.com/YrVT52qwZd— Polk County Sheriff ???? (@PolkCoSheriff) January 29, 2021
