There’s not much more “Florida” than this. We’ve seen that the Florida alligators are out, but not where we’d expect to find them. The latest story comes from a central Florida elementary school, where a large alligator chose to visit.

It’s alligator mating season, so alligators are going to be far more active than during the rest of the year. This encounter happened a little after 7 a.m on Monday. The school resource officer was called in to handle the situation. He used a catchpole, taped the jaws closed, and was able to take the six-foot-long alligator away.

The principal of Michigan Avenue Elementary School in St. Cloud redirected traffic as students were coming in. The encounter was caught on the school’s surveillance cameras. The alligator was released in a nearby canal.
