Just caught a Gator....

For real, no shit. Just a little one, about 24-25 inches from tip to tail. The compound I work at is a couple hundred acres of reclaimed swampland, surrounded by woods, marshes, etc; so we get wildlife here all the time (wild pigs, ducks, racoons, etc). This is the second gator found here this week.

I got a call from one of the administrators out doing her building checks, saying that there was a gator outside one of the buildings. Of course I had to see this first hand, lol. So I grabbed the spotlight and went to check it out. A couple other staff members were pissing him off by poking at him with broom handles......he was hissing and making this funny growling sound. I grabbed a cloth laundry bag and had the other staff hold his head down with the pushbroom, while I got the bag around the rest of his body. When I was ready they released and I scooped the rest of him up into the bag. Not that I was afraid of losing a limb to this little thing, but I'm sure the teeth he did have were sharp enough to shred some skin, so I wasn't taking any chances, lol. We actually have a pond here they call the Gator Pond that's fenced in, so thats where we released him.

I tried to get a couple phone pics but they were too blurry and dark to see anything. The pic below isn't mine, it's just one I found online to show you guys what he looked like. Same markings, and probably about the same size too, an inch or so over 2 feet. Just call me Steve Irwin, lmao...
