They used their squad cars to block it from crossing the road. An officer with the Florida Fish And Wildlife Conservation Commission used a rope to lasso the gator around the neck. The 400 pound gator tossed and turned while four men tried to hold him down . They duct-taped the gator's snout shut and tied down its limbs before putting the seven foot gator into the back of a truck.
The gator will be returned safely to the wild.
