Florida deputy wrangles alligator stuck in garage in wild video

Mice, roaches and spiders: these are a few of the critters that a homeowner will occasionally come across. But a much bigger animal wandered into one Floridian’s garage on Wednesday — an alligator.

The alligator, which has been spotted in a Sarasota neighborhood over the past few weeks, wandered into the garage unbeknownst to the homeowner. The homeowner unknowingly shut the garage door and left while the gator was still inside, FOX13 reported.

A neighbor then called the homeowner, who is currently unnamed, warning that the gator may be trapped inside.

“He walked around the garage for a minute or two and then scurried under the golf cart,” one neighbor told the news station.
