Small Gator Makes Up For His Size By Putting Up A Fight When Cops Wrangle Him From Under Car

It wasn’t just cars that were parked in a Florida Winn-Dixie’s lot last week, but a gator as well!

The gator terrorized a family in their car, forcing them to stay inside while he found a nice quiet spot under it. According to Inside Edition, Sarasota cops were called to the scene and seasoned wranglers tried to remove him from his hiding spot.

The animal may have only been four feet in length, but he made up for his relatively small size by putting up quite a fight. Check it out in the clip below, and you can see the feisty little one twist and turn in an effort to evade his captors.

But the authorities had too good a grip on him and managed to secure him. As curious and awestruck onlookers watched the capture, the cops taped the gator’s mouth and loaded him into the back of their car before releasing him back into the wild, far away from the grocery store.

Of course, gators are no strangers to being in places where they shouldn’t be, which is often where they are the most likely to run into humans. Check out this insane story: A man went out to his pool one morning with his senior dog only to find himself face-to-face with a massive gator!

Please SHARE if you’re glad there are folks out there brave enough to handle these dangerous creatures without causing harm to them or themselves!
