A nearly 9-foot alligator has been caught in a pool at a home in Parkland by one of the "Gator Boys".
The trapper was Paul Bedard, who is known as one of TV's "Gator Boys," who rescue alligators from backyards, swimming pools and garages, then take them to Everglades Holiday Park in Broward County.
The 8 feet, 8 inch gator had made its way through the pool screen enclosure and into the water.
Bedard, on Instagram, said that usually the tries to play around" with the gator in the water until they're tired, to prevent them from biting or slamming into the concrete and hurting themselves. In this case however, Bedard wrote that the alligator was "super mellow" and allowed himself to be caught and taped up from the front.
After playing with the reptile to drain the gator's energy, he was safely carried out.
