AFLORIDA’s family was shocked to see a huge alligator moving in their yard in Longwood, Seminole County. The homeowner said the gator was entangled in a lacrosse net for about 45 minutes.
The resident was initially alarmed when he saw the crocodile, UPI News Is informed. A few minutes later, he saw Gator trapped in a trap, trying desperately to get out. The resident told local media that it took Gator a long time to free himself and roam the nearby woods.
The owner of the house, who could not be identified, said the family later found a dead snake in the trap and speculated that the gator was trying to eat it and got trapped.
In the video shared by the resident, the gator can be seen walking in the yard a few seconds after he managed to get out of the net.
“God, he’s so big,” the homeowner can be heard saying in the video.
Crocodiles live in the Longwood area. However, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will not move reptiles unless they are more than 4 feet tall or if the gator behaves aggressively. In Florida, people often come in contact with crocodiles, and in some cases, reptiles are seen in residential areas.
As of April 2019, it was said that there are about one million alligators. Between 1948 and 2019, there were 413 unprovoked alligator bites, 25 of which were fatal, according to the FWC.
In a recent incident, a woman and her friend Floida survived a crocodile attack while on a fishing trip in the Everglades. There is an abundance of crocodiles in this area. A “terrible” tick tock video shows a gator clinging to an unknown woman.
The viral video shows Gator calmly staring at it a few feet away from the water. At one point, the gator is seen slowly raising his head from the water. In the video, the woman can be heard shouting: “Oh my God, Holy S —” Another man was heard saying: “That’s why you never put your feet in the water.”
