Alligators Paying Visits to South Florida Neighborhoods
Another day, another gator.
For the second time this week, an alligator paid a visit to a South Florida neighborhood, according to a WSVN report.
Early this morning, people living in a Plantation neighborhood near Sunrise Boulevard and Flamingo Road found an eight-foot alligator taking a rest in the middle of the street.
By the time the cops showed up, the alligator had moved to the grass, where a trapper engaged in some good ol' gator rasslin' -- followed by a quick kiss for the reptile, as seen on the video here.
The trapper told WSVN he'll use the gator for wrestling for a few years, then ship him off to an alligator farm.
This comes after Monday's alligator appearance in Boca Raton, which included a seven-footer, according to United Press International.
That one was found in the Country Park neighborhood and was wandering through the joint before landing on somebody's porch.
It was captured by someone from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
"Alligators that are over five feet long are processed for their meat and hide, and thus was the fate of this big guy," UPI says.
These gators come roughly a month after a gator made a snack out of someone's 80-pound dog in the PGA National community in Palm Beach Gardens.
According to the Palm Beach Post, the eight-foot alligator was trapped and killed.
