An 11-foot gator decided to cruise around a residential area, and, sadly had to be euthanized Sunday Alligators are not too aggressive, but a large gator could easily kill, and yes, people’s safety trumps that of animals
According to Carroll, it slowly but surely—pausing every so often—ambled up the driveway of a home and then crashed easily through the chain-link fence surrounding the backyard, where it took refuge and waited. “We watched that gator go through that fence like nothing,” Carroll said.
The gator was still waiting when a Fish and Wildlife trapper arrived on the scene to remove the creature and transport it to a less urban environment. Sadly, however, it had been a rainy night, and slipping a rope around the beast’s neck to lead it to safety proved impossible under the conditions. Authorities report that they were forced to euthanize the animal.
