Large gator stuck on the wrong side of Alligator Alley fence
Florida Highway Patrol troopers got a little surprise Sunday morning.
A large gator was found on the road side of the chain-link fence along Alligator Alley in Collier County.
"Oh," one trooper said after seeing the gator.
Troopers caught the alligator on video near Interstate 75 while discussing what to do about the unorthodox situation. Any large animal on a road can cause drivers trouble for drivers.
In a Twitter post, the FHP joked: "Way to at least stay in the grass shoulder and out of the travel lanes!"
A trapper was brought in to relocate the animal, FHP later reported.
